Let’s try taco night a little differently this week!
Do you love Taco Tuesday? I do, too. It really is one of my favourite days of the week. Thereâ€™s nothing stopping us from having another taco night. We can make it happen any day of the week! There are many variants of tacos – different shapes, different ingredients and different looks. But this Layered Taco Pie is a great place to start for those who love tacos but want to experiment with other options. Itâ€™s one of the best dinner recipes you can use to satisfy a taco craving. It only has a few ingredients and is super comforting at the same time!
1 lb ground beef
1 (16 oz) can refried beans
1 packet taco seasoning
1/2 cup water
6 8-inch flour tortillas
2 cups Mexican cheese, grated
Iceberg lettuce, chopped
Preheat oven to 350Â°F and spray an 8-inch springform pan with nonstick spray.
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef and drain, if needed. Add in the refried beans, taco seasoning, and water, and simmer until most liquid has absorbed, about 5 minutes.
Line the bottom of the prepared pan with a tortilla. Spread 1/5 of the beef mixture evenly over the tortilla and top with 1/4 cup of the cheese. Repeat layers – tortilla, beef, cheese – ending with a tortilla on top.
Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top and bake until cheese is melted and golden brown, about 20 minutes.
Let cool 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve with toppings if desired. Enjoy!
