Macho Nacho Pie

Macho, Macho la la la la la la laaaaaaaaa....... :-)

Yes, this is the song that went through my head as I made at this savory pie.....

Such a yummy pie....super easy peasy to make and full of great flavor!  Don't be afraid to jazz up this pie to your liking.  I added corn to the recipe but later thought about also adding chopped green peppers or even a little salsa or some diced green chilies. 

Go ahead and be a "Macho Man" and make this recipe into your own!

Nacho Pie
(recipe adapted from Taste of Home)


1 lb. ground beef - ground turkey or chicken can be easily substituted

1/2 cup chopped onion

1 can (8oz.) tomato sauce

1/2 cup canned corn

2 Tbsp's taco seasoning

1 tube (8oz.) refrigerated  crescent rolls

1 1/2 cups crushed tortilla chips, divided

1 cup sour cream

1 cup shredded cheese - Mexican blend, cheddar or monteray jack all all great cheeses to use


1. In a large pan cook beef and onion over medium heat.....

  Cook until beef is no longer pink. Drain any fat.  Stir in tomato sauce, corn and taco seasoning....

  Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.

2. While meat/tomato mix is simmering prepare pie crust.  Separate crescent dough into 8 triangles.  Place triangles into 9" pie pan with points of triangles towards the middle of pan.  Seal all perforations together as you press crescent rolls onto the bottom and up the sides of the pie pan.

3. Sprinkle 1 cup crushed chips onto bottom of crust......

  Top with meat mixture and then layer carefully with sour cream....

  Sprinkle with grated cheese and then the remaining crushed chips....

4. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees F or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown.....

  Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve with extra sour cream and a scoop of salsa. 

Happy Nacho Pie Baking!
