Nacho Pie for a Quick & Easy Dinner!

Today I have a delicious and easy weeknight recipe. Nacho Pie, this recipe is so quick to put together and makes a tasty meal along with a nice salad on the side or maybe Spanish rice. The reason I suggest Spanish rice is because to me this dish taste similar to beef enchiladas. I like to make a lot of casseroles, but some people in my family, who I will not mention names do not like casseroles a whole lot. They do love quick and easy recipes like this one. The first time I made Nacho Pie there wasn't a single piece left in the pie plate. So that should tell you something. This would be perfect to take to a church or family potluck dinner just toss everything in, bake and its ready to go.

Yummy Good!



These are the ingredients you will need:
Ground Beef, Mexican Cheese Blend, Onion, 1 Packet Taco Seasoning, Tomato Sauce, Water, Sour Cream, Corn Tortilla Chips and Crescent Roll Dough. I accidentally grabbed the wrong cheese, so I used cheddar, but the Mexican cheese blend is so much better.




Preheat oven to 350
in large skillet brown beef and onion over medium heat till done, Drain any grease.



add taco seasoning,



tomato sauce and


water ( I usually just fill the tomato sauce can about 3/4 filled with water)


Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes - 10 minutes



grease a 9 inch pie plate with non stick spray. This is my favorite pie plate, I love the design.


Separate Crescent rolls into 8 triangles. Place each crescent triangle with points facing towards the middle into the pie plate. You might have to maneuver the triangle a bit at the end and turn some of them side ways, that's OK as long as the pie plate is covered completely.


Press onto bottom and up sides of plate to form crust. Seal perforations, it will look just like this.


Sprinkle 1 cup crushed Corn Tortilla Chips over crust.



top with meat mixture


Spread sour cream over meat


Sprinkle the cheese on top of the sour cream and remaining 1/2 cup crushed Doritos.


This is what it will look like with all the ingredients added.



Bake about 30 - 40 minutes or until cheese melts, pie is bubbly and crust is golden brown.


Cool about 10 minutes before cutting.




Top with a dollop sour cream, diced tomatoes and black olives if you like.

You might have to maneuver the triangles a bit at the end and turn some of them side ways, that's OK as long as the pie plate is covered completely. Press onto bottom and up sides of plate to form crust. Seal perforations. Sprinkle 1 cup crushed Doritos over crust. Top with meat mixture. Using a spatula spread sour cream over meat. Sprinkle the Cheese and then remaining 1/2 cup crushed Doritos. Bake 30 - 40 minutes or until cheese melts, pie is bubbly and crust is golden brown. Cool 10 minutes before cutting.

Wow, that sounds fantastic!!! Is there a reason you use the crescent rolls instead of a pie crust? Just curious. (I just so happen to have some crescent rolls in the fridge!) I can't wait to give this a try!

I will be trying this recipe very soon. Did you use nacho cheese doritos or tortilla chips in your recipe?

Mommy's Kitchen said... #

Sandy it is just plain doritos or any brand tortilla chips.

I made this tonight, and it was great! I left out the sour cream because my husband it weirdly afraid of it, but everyone liked it. It's enough to have again tomorrow, too. That is such an ingenious idea, using crescent dough as a pie crust! Love your recipes.

Anonymous, I am so glad you like this recipe. My oldest son loves this dish. You might be able to sneak a bit of sour cream in next time. You can hardly tell it is added.

Belle said... #

I'm gonna fix this soon...probably this week. I know my grands that live with me will love it.

I love your site. Thanks for keeping it REAL! ;)

Ingrid said... #

I've made something similar but without the cresent pie crust. That's a great idea. My three aren't too keen on casseroles either.

DO you put Doritos on this also at the end? I see you have Corn Tortilla Chips listed but then for the top it says crushed Doritos. Did I miss something? Just want to make sure before I try this recipe.

Tina at Mommy's Kitchen said... #

It is the Doritos Corn Chips that I use. I add the chips to the bottom and a bit on the top.
