These pictures absolutely do not do this dish justice! This is one of the quickest, most delicious dinners I make. I have made it several times now after finding it on Mommy's Kitchen. I LOVE Tina's blog. She cooks up so many delicious things. Remember these? Yep, that was a Tina recipe! I have yet to make anything from there, that I didn't enjoy. If I had more time the night we ate this, I would have made some rice or something to go with it, but I tell you- it was just fine on it's own! It is a great switch-up from the same old taco dinner.
Nacho Pie Ingredients: * 1 lb. ground beef * 1/2 cup chopped onion * 1 (8 oz.) can of tomato sauce * 3/4 cup water * 1 packet taco seasoning * 1 tube of crescent roll dough (Pillsbury or generic- it doesn't matter) * 1 1/2 cup crushed Doritos or tortilla chips (which is what I used) * 1/2 cup sour cream * 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar or mexican blend- and while we're being real, I used waaaaaayyy more than one cup. More like 2. =) * additional sour cream, diced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, olives, or other garnish
Directions: 1.) Preheat oven to 350. 2.) In a large skillet, brown beef and onion over medium heat until done. Drain off any grease and return to skillet. 3.) Stir in tomato sauce, water, and taco seasoning. Bring to a boil, and simmer for 5-10 mintues. 4.) Separate crescent rolls into 8 triangles and place them in a 9-inch pie plate (just fit them all in there and press the seams so it looks like one solid pie crust. I have to tear them and turn them sideways to get them all in there.) Press up the sides to form your crust. 5.) Sprinkle 1 cup crushed chips over crust 6.) Top with taco meat mixture. 7.) Using a spatula, spread sour cream evenly over meat mixture. 8.) Sprinkle cheese and remaining chips on top. 9.) Bake 30-40 minutes, or until cheese melts, pie is bubbly, and crust is golden brown. ** Cool 10 minutes before cutting (if you are not me. If you are me- cut into it anyway because your husband is in a hurry to leave for work, slop some onto plates and eat like barbarians. =)
