Impossible Taco Pie

We went "old-school" for dinner!  This isn't anything fancy, it is just good.  I love Mexican food (or Tex-Mex, Lea Ann) and I am always looking for a quick and healthier recipe to make at home.  I have a neglected Bisquick cookbook and this recipe is one of the "All-Time Favorites".  I vaguely remember eating this as a child, so I thought I would give it a whirl.

I coaxed Chicken Legs into the kitchen to help make dinner.  He wasn't overly enthusiastic when I told him what we were having for dinner, but I just ignored him because I knew he would like it.  It was very quick and easy to make.  I could tell that his attitue was changing about dinner when he realized it was kind of like a taco quiche.  The verdict?  He LOVED it.  He almost ate the whole thing by himself.  We topped the pie with lettuce, tomato, and some Raspberry Chipotle Ranch Sauce. SO good! We are already looking through the cookbook to decide what Impossible Pie we are trying next!

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion flakes

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400.  Grease pie plate.

Cook beef and onion until beef is brown, drain.  Stir in taco seasoning and salsa.  Spread in pie plate.  Top with 1/4 cup cheese.  Stir Bisquick, milk and eggs until blended.  Pour into pie plate.  Bake for about 25 minutes, sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Bake additional 3-5 minutes, until cheese is melted.  Serve with salsa and sour cream.

  1. Awesome! My mom used to make that when I was a kid. Love it.

  2. Can you believe I've never tried this! I can't believe I raised my kids and this never made an appearance on our dinner table. Gotta give it a try when they come home from college!

  3. Looks delicious, Steph.... I'm going to print out this recipe ---and I'll use it especially when the grandkids are here. They would love it too...


  4. LOL, you can call it anything you want! Looks very good. And, there's that baking dish that I love. Gotta find me one of those.

  5. We used to make the impossible cheeseburger pie for the boys years ago. It is pretty good, I might have to make it soon for old times sake.

  6. Yes! I've got everything I need. It's what's for dinner tonight! :)

  7. I made it on Sat. Joe and the twins loved it. Thanks for passing along the recipe.

    I'm making that pizza pasta recipe you just posted for tonight's dinner. :)

  8. I made this for dinner last night and the whole family liked it. It was gobbled up. Thanks for the yummy recipe!

  9. Fantastic! I haven't had this in ages, but this is as good as I remember.

  10. My mom used to make one like this, but she put leftover beans in it too. I had forgotten about this Thanks for the reminder. It looks so good!

  11. If I double this recipe and put it in a 9x13 pan, how do you think that would affect the cook time? Do you think a 9x13 would be too big? I have a 6'3" 14 year old boy to feed so I pretty much have to cook for an army...lol
