Beef Nacho Pie Recipe

Beef Nacho Pie Recipe

I like to spend time in the garden, so I look for recipes that don't require hours in the kitchen. This savory Southwestern pie has a short list of ingredients and is a snap to prepare. —Doris Gill, Sargent, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1-1/2 cups crushed nacho-flavored tortilla chips, divided
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, separate crescent dough into eight triangles; place in a greased 9-in. pie plate with points toward the center. Press onto the bottom and up the sides to form a crust; seal perforations.
  • 3. Sprinkle 1 cup chips over crust. Top with meat mixture. Carefully spread sour cream over meat mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and remaining chips. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"I liked the flavor overall but the taco chips were soggy. Next time I would skip putting them on the bottom of the crust and just on top. This is a good base recipe that can easily be modified to individual taste."

"With all the glorious reviews before mine, I must have done something wrong because this was a definite "ick" for us. I know I used only 2 Tbsp of taco seasoning as written in the recipe, but that flavor was overpowering. Perhaps it was the particular brand of taco seasoning? The beef Nacho pie I made was a disappointing dinner flop."

"Everyone but the kids liked this so it works out. Made modifications for what I had, used can of fire roasted tomatoes w/chilies instead of sauce, didn't have sour cream. And the kids got into the bag of Doritos so used those sparingly. topped with lettuce, tomatoes and avocado. Was really good would make again."

"My family LOVES this... with some flavor modifications. I used salsa instead of tomato sauce and added a small can of green chilies. Served it with shredded lettuce & diced tomatoes. It takes longer to smush the crescent rolls together than to mix up the rest of it."

"Not too bad. I added a drained can of corn to the meat mixture before simmering. I think it definitely helped. I might try adding the sour cream after baking next time."

"Zowie! What flavor when I used 1 1/2 tablespoons Trader Joe's taco seasoning! Makes chapped lips burn. Had to add a bit more tomato sauce and diced tomato juices for grass-fed beef. Skipped the onion & the first chips layer. Trader Joe's crescent rolls are kosher, yay. Very good flavor, yum."

"It is very tasty. This dish is real taste of home. Love it. I did some changes. My kids don`t like spicy hot so I put less taco seasoning and I rolled a circle from crescent dough instead of dealing with eight triangles. And I crushed chips for top. My husband had this pie with picante sause and liked it very much."
