Beef Pot Pie Recipe

I was craving a¬†beef pot pie recipe. I just wasn’t feeling it. Of course, seeing Taco Bell commercials while writing recipe posts may have influenced me to create a¬†taco pie instead of a¬†ground beef pot pie.

Ground Beef Pot Pie

Why did I want to make a ground beef pot pie instead of a chicken pot pie? Truth is I am very picky when comes to chicken. Plus beef pot pie casserole is something I knew I could whip up since I have ground beef in my freezer.

Mexican Casserole

Those taco bell commercials really intensified my craving for Mexican. So why not take that beef pot pie recipe and turn it into a Mexican casserole? A taco pie with pie crust would be a great way to combine a pot pie recipe with a Mexican casserole!

What is nice too about this taco pie with pie crust recipe, you can play with the flavor. I like taco pie mild, but you could really up the heat on this beef pot pie casserole by choosing to add jalapenos and a hot salsa to the filling.

    I make turkey pot pie all the time for my mom to keep in her freezer but it never occurred to me to make other flavours, she loves tacos so this could be a great dish for her.

    Never heard of this amazing twist to a pot pie. It’s not surprising that it’s not common on line. Looks pretty easy and delicious.
