Impossible Taco Pie © 1983

The pie that does the impossible by making its own crust!
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 envelope (1 1/4 ounces) taco seasoning mix
1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
1 1/4 cups milk
3/4 cup Bisquick baking mix
3 eggs
2 tomatoes, sliced
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack or Cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 400º. Grease pie plate, 10x1 1/2 inches. Cook and stir beef and onion until brown; drain. Stir in seasoning mix. Spread in plate; top with chilies. Beat milk, baking mix and eggs until smooth, 15 seconds in blender on high or 1 minute with hand beater. Pour into plate. Bake 25 minutes. Top with tomatoes and cheese. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean, 8-10 minutes longer. Cool 5 minutes. Serve with sour cream, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce and shredded cheese if desired. 6 to 8 servings.

Hi Kirk, just one question: have you ever actually tried any of these recipes? And in those cases when you have how about giving us your personal critique? :)

Marina-
Hi! Believe it or not, I have actually tried a lot of the recipes. But since I am not much of a dessert person, I have to admit I haven't tried many of the pies and/or cakes. I have tried a lot of the entree recipes, though. I pretty much haven't been too disappointed as of yet, since I know what ingredients I do/don't like.

I would love to give a personal critique on the ones I have tried, but to be honest, I just don't have the time right now. What with maintaing my main blog (My So-Called Strife) with (hopefully) original blog entries 5 days a week and working from home for clients, AND scanning/typing up/maintaining this new blog, it'd be more work than I could handle. However a friend of mine is threatening to make some of the recipes and report back to me, so she might be persuaded to grace us with her commentary in the future. Of course, ANYONE is welcome to do that if they'd like to, I actually think that could be a lot of fun! Maybe even submitting a picture of their creation. Who knows?

So, for now. I'm gonna have to politely decline. I wish I could, but I'm gonna be lucky to keep up with blogging for two blogs and keeping up with my responses to comments! ;) I hope you understand.

P.s. I have made the Bisquick Taco Pie and it is dynamite!! I also have a super simple recipe for sausage balls that I'll post at a later date, that also uses Bisquick. They are AWESOME! :^d

I've never made the Taco Pie, but I've made the Impossible Cheeseburger Pie, so I am going to assume this will be great, especially with sour cream! I am definitely making it sometime soon when it isn't too hot to turn on the oven.

I'll vouch for the Taco Pie. I love the classic cookbooks too. My collection consists of a whopping 4. BTW. I found something for you at a garage sale!

Exactly! You hit the nail on the head! The magazine (circa 1984) I got this from also had the recipe for the Cheeseburger Pie and a Cheesecake. Both of which were "Impossible," since they also made their own crusts! I'd wager they're ALL good. I know the Taco Pie is!

Ragdoll-
Three cheers for the Taco Pie! Sometimes I even made a side of Spanish Rice to go with it. Go carbs!

Woot! I'm already excited! I love receiving mail that isn't a bill! Thanks in advance! I'm sure I'll love it, whatever it is! :D

HAH -- I had the Taco Pie a few years ago when a college friend made it! It was really good, as I remember. :o)
