A Recipe Surprise!!!

My Taco Pie Recipe

This easy-peasy taco pie recipe is fast becoming a favorite of mine. It's quick and easy to prepare, and is vegetarian.


You will need:
  • 9 inch frozen pie shell
  • One can refried beans
  • One can corn kernels (washed and drained)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese blend (as much as you'd like)
  • Cilantro
  • Other veggies (optional): add whatever you like- red onions, tomatoes, olives, etc
  • Salsa


Preheat oven to 425F. Pre-bake a 9 inch frozen pie shell for 5 minutes at 425 F. In a large bowl, mix the refried beans,corn kernels, about 1/4 cup sour cream, as much cheese as you'd like, cilantro. Add salt and pepper to taste; be generous with your favorite salsa! Stir until mixed completely- you can add some tomatoes, red onions, pretty much whatever veggies you want...Pour the mixture into pre-baked pie shell, top with a layer of cheese, and bake at 425F for 30 minutes.

I've been toying with the idea of adding tortilla strips to the top for some added crunch. Let me know what you think of this recipe!!!


  1. Looks and sounds delicious. I'm wondering if crushed tortilla chips could be used to make a gluten-free "crust."

    1. I don't know much about gluten-free might make an interesting crunchy shell...Or perhaps you could try making a gluten-free crust? I'm not sure what that would entail exactly, but it might be worth a go...
