Taco Pie

April 22, 2011 at 4:31 am (Food)

Once again, dinner was rushed for two reasons, Deuce wasn’t interested in letting me cook and I hadn’t been interested in going to the store this morning.  I had to make due quickly with what was in the house, and that wasn’t much.  I invented Taco Pie.  Well, let’s be honest, someone, somewhere has probably already done it, but its the first time I’ve had it.

  • 1 recipe corn bread batter (I’ll post my favorite below, but you can use any basic size recipe you like)
  • 1 pound chicken breast, cooked and shredded (what, you say it’s frozen?  Just toss it in some boiling water, it won’t take long to cook)
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • Feel free to add some other veggies here if you want, diced onions, bell peppers, etc
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

Preheat oven to 400.  Lightly grease a 9×13 casserole dish.  If you want to save a dish, mix your corn bread batter right in the casserole dish (that’s what we did).  Spread batter across the bottom of dish.

Mix together chicken, veggies, taco seasoning and soup.  Drop chicken mixture by the spoonful onto corn bread batter.  Spread cheese over the top.

Bake 30-40 minutes until cornbread on the bottom is fully cooked.

Great served with sour cream and salsa.  Enjoy!

My favorite corn bread

  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

For regular purposes, mix it all up and pour it into a greased 9inch square pan to bake.  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for about 40 minutes or until fully cooked.  Or mix it all up and use it in the recipe above.
