Burrito Pie Recipe

Recipe for Burrito Pie

Full of your favorite Tex-Mex flavors and topped with all the best ingredients like sour cream and guacamole, this burrito pie is an easy to serve, easy to make, quick weeknight meal your entire family will chow down on. 

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. 

Scroll to the bottom for a full (and also printable) recipe card of this post, including all measurements and instructions, so you can follow along in your kitchen without being on your phone. 

Not everyone likes to read all the extra questions that go along with the recipe, so if that is you, just go to the bottom of the article. If you do like to read through, I explained all extra recipe information in the post first. 

Here is what ingredients you need to gather to get started: 

  • ground beef
  • taco seasoning

Stacked 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.
