Taco Pot Pie

I've really been into pot pies lately.  I've made Pizza Pot Pies and Spaghetti and Meatball Pot Pies - both were great!  This time we are doing Taco Pot Pies!

OMG - these were really good and a lot of fun to eat.  These are easy to customize to each family members taste.  We topped the pot pies with our favorite taco toppings -  lettuce, tomato, sour cream and a little more cheese.  This was a nice twist to our usual taco night.  I wonder what our next pot pie will be......

Taco Pot Pies
(Printable Recipe)

1 lb ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup salsa
4 (1oz) slices cheddar cheese
1 can refrigerated pizza dough
4 large ramekins
sour cream
shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 425.

Cut 4 circles of dough about one inch larger than ramekin or bowl.

In a large skillet, brown the hamburger meat.  Drain fat and return meat to skillet. Add taco seasoning and water. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Spray ramekins with cooking spray. Place 1 slices of mozzarella in each ramekin. Divide taco meat between ramekins. Top taco meat in each ramekin with 2-3 Tbsp of black beans and finally with 2 Tbsp of salsa.

Spray the outside of the ramekin with cooking spray, then stretch a round of dough across the top and let hang over the edge.

Bake for 15 minutes until dough is golden. Invert each pot pie onto a plate and lift off the ramekin.

  1. Okay... I had to think there for a second, but I see now. You make it with crust on top, then flip & voila... the bowl is on bottom. Love this idea!

  2. I live in West Texas where the Tex-Mex food abounds and this looks amazing. I have always used flour or corn tortillas but this pizza dough sounds great. Thanks!

  4. Wondering if I could make a good pizza dough using masa so it would taste like a corn tortilla.
