Inspired by a cheeseburger pie recipe clipped from a magazine,I made this up while hungry for tacos. I didn't have any taco shells, so I used pie crust.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown hamburger and onion, until meat is no longer pink.
  2. Drain off fat.
  3. Add green pepper, corn and jalapeños; stir.
  4. Add envelope of taco seasoning and the amount of water the envelope calls for.
  5. Simmer until thick.
  6. Add salsa and stir.
  7. Line a pie plate with 1/2 crust pastry.
  8. Pour in hamburger mixture.
  9. Top with cheese and sliced olives.
  10. Place remaining half of crust pastry on top and seal edges.
  11. Cut several slits into top of crust for steam to escape.
  12. Bake at 350°F for 45 minutes until crust is golden.

Heaven on a plate. I made pie crust from scratch. I didn't have taco seasoning, so I used a little Goya Sazon seasoning along with cumin and basil, then mixed in a little flour dissolved in chicken broth. Things thickened up just fine. I gave the pie 10 minutes to set up once removed from the oven. We couldn't stop eating this! So delicious. Went well with a big salad and pinto bean saute. This one is a winner!

This is a great recipe. The filling would actually be good wrapped in a flour tortilla, but then you wouldn't get the pie crust. I used about a pound and half of meat, but instead of using additional taco seasoning, I just added some of my own chili powder, cumin, and salt. This will definately be made again.

I prepared this ahead of time, putting it in the refrig. for my ds to bake for dinner and everyone loved the pie even though I didn't use the jalapenos and olives. However an oven temp is not mentioned in the recipe, so we cooked it at 350-degrees F and it came out perfect.
