Really great recipe, especially for a work night. I'll admit, I bought pre-made dough and just unrolled it (work night after all). Since the box came with two crusts, I made two pies. The recipe doubles easily. I was worried that the chips would lose their crunch, but not so. It got a thumbs up from my teenager too!
This was a really tasty recipe. Like another reviewer, I couldn't fit all the ingredients into a frozen deep dish pie shell. I used 1/2 the can of refried beans and about 1/2 cup of salsa. I didn't do two layers. I pre-baked the shell. I baked the shell/bean/meat layers for 20 mins and then added the chip layer and cheese and baked an additional 10 mins.
This was good, but I had some issues. I used a frozen deep dish pie shell and it was too small. After I put the beans & salsa mixture in the crust was already more than half full. I used a pound of ground beef which I think provides a good ratio to the beans. I let the cheese on top get too brown and it didn't seem as if the pie really got warm enough. Next time I will wait to add the cheese on top. I think I better lay some aluminum foil on top so the chips don't get too brown before adding the cheese. Perhaps I will try a pie crust roll and bake it in my quiche dish and see if that holds it better. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely make this again.
This was good. I only used 3/4lbs ground beef b/c that's what I had on hand. I just mixed the cheese into the bean mixture and that worked well. In the future I'd like to try using black beans with about 1/3 can refried beans (only b/c we love black beans). I omitted the chips since we don't buy them. I used Sour Cream Pastry Sour Cream Pastry. REALLY good! I had made an apple pie with the first half of the pie crust recipe and it was great that I could use the same crust for a dinner food. Thanks for the recipe!
This is amazing. I made this for my BF "guys night" and its a huge hit. YUMMY!
Made this last night and we really enjoyed it. I followed your directions -- even using Penzeys taco seasoning! I did add a small can of diced green chilies to the top layer (right before that last layer of cheese). I think the next time I might increase the ground beef to more like a pound. We topped it with the shredded lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream just prior to serving. It's very filling -- but so much fun to eat. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
Very good! I doubled it and used 2 regular pie crusts. Had some beans left over, and just eyeballed the other ingredients. I like that it tastes like nachos on top!
I had this tonight and it was simple and fantastic! The only thing different I did was use a whole package of taco seasoning. I will be making this again for sure!
A very tasty dish! I used 1 lb. ground beef and a whole package of taco seasoning. Used Refried Beans the easy (but tasty) Way for the refried beans
Made this tonight, delicious ! Too soon to tell, but this will likely become one of those dishes I crave. Thanks Kay !
