So trolling Pinterest as I often do for dinner inspiration, design inspiration, gift ideas, etc. I kept seeing “Taco Pie”, but every recipe I clicked on used a “Bisquick” binder, which I thought, taco pie, where’s the tacos?
Corn tortillas (gluten-free) made way more sense to me naturally speaking. So, I grabbed my tortillas, my ground turkey, the very last of my homemade summer salsa (tear in the eye) and got to work. I didn’t bother trying to follow any of the recipes I looked at, just went into the refrigerator & grabbed what I thought would be delicious! (lots of cheese!) Let’s begin:
1 package ground turkey (20 oz.)
taco seasoning (I make my own, I will not buy store packets, most contain some disgusting ingredients that I can get into at some other time) I’ll post my taco seasoning recipe and add the link here.
1 Tbsp. Organic Oregano
Grated cheese, as much or as little as you like, I would say I used 1/2 cup total
Sour cream (again at your discretion) I used about 1/4 cup total
Salsa 1/2 cup (mine was organic homemade)
Salsa Verde (green salsa) (organic) 1/4 cup
1/2 Cup chopped smoked green chiles (store-bought jarred)
1 can of black beans
Gluten-free Corn Tortillas (I used 8 for this recipe)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
First I cooked up my ground turkey & seasoned it, set aside.
Then warmed up my tortillas (to make pliable) in a pan and started layering from there.
Each layer of the “pie” has 3 tortillas (except top, only used 2) 2 split in half & placed around edges, then 1 whole in the middle (see 2nd pic below)
Next start putting all the goodies on the tortillas:
Next another layer of tortillas and some chiles!!
Dump the rest of the taco meat on, and some more fixins!!
Lastly 2 split tortillas on top, with plenty more cheese and another sprinkle of oregano:
One final delicious picture for you:
Cook, eat, share and enjoy!!
