This Tortilla Taco Pie recipe is a 30-minute dinner with layers of flour tortillas, taco meat, cheese, and beans. It’s a fun twist on tacos and so easy to make.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (1 oz)
  • 2/3 cups salsa, divided
  • 4 (8-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1 cup refried black beans
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • Juice of ½ a lime
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the beef and brown it, breaking it apart as it cooks. Once the beef is browned, add the taco seasoning and 1/3 cup of salsa. Stir and cook the beef for a couple of minutes. Take the pan off the heat.
  3. Spread 1/3 cup of salsa in a 9” pie pan. Spread ¼ cup of beans on a tortilla and place it bean-side up in the pie dish. Spread a generous ½ cup of the ground beef mixture on top of the beans and sprinkle ¼ cup of cheese over the top. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas finishing with a layer of beans, beef, and cheese on top of the tortilla pie.
  4. Bake the taco pie for 10 to 15 minutes or until it’s warmed through and the cheese is melted on top.
  5. While it bakes, mix the sour cream and lime juice in a small bowl. Once the taco pie is done baking, drizzle the sour cream sauce over the top. Sprinkle cilantro over the top if using. Slice into four pieces for serving.
