Burrito Pie Recipe
This burrito pie is a fantastic Mexican recipe that can easily be a side dish or a main dish. If using as a main dish, serve with some fresh pico de gallo and some chips and queso for a rounded out meal! As a side dish, can easily be portioned out at a party and using a spring form pan helps you make sure that the dish doesn’t lose its shape. While we personally haven’t done it, you can also make this recipe in a casserole dish if you prefer, but will need to alter the dish to fit.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 package, taco seasoning
- 1 can, 10.5 oz, diced tomatoes with green chilies
- 1 can, 16 oz, refried beans
- 1 small can, 4 oz, sliced black olives, drained
- 5 flour tortillas
- 2 cups shredded cheese
- sour cream
- chopped fresh cilantro
Burrito Pie Tip: I used an 8″ spring form pan and 8″ tortillas. If you use a 6″ pan, make sure you get 6″ tortillas.
It will also be pretty full but I think it should still fit into the pan.
How to make Burrito Pie
Preheat oven to 350 and grease an 8″ springform pan with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
In a large skillet, brown beef and drain. Add taco seasoning and tomatoes and cook until heated through.
Place a small amount of beef in the bottom of the prepared pan.
Top with two tortillas. Layer 1/3 each of the beef, refried beans, olives and cheese. repeat with two tortillas, beef, beans, olives and cheese.
TIP: To smash down refried beans easily, use a spatula~!
Add 1 more tortilla and add the remaining beef, olives and cheese.
Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and top with sour cream, chopped avocados, and chopped fresh cilantro before cutting into pie slices.
