Taco Pie Bake

Save this recipe! Almost 8 years ago Ben and I were married. At my bridal shower, guests were invited to share a recipe with the bride-to-be. I truly enjoy this tradition and would recommend it to anyone planning a bridal shower, as it offers such a personal touch. I actually received this recipe from two different people… proof that it is well-loved! Over the years I’ve tweaked it a bit to fit my own family’s preferences, feel free to do the same! 

Taco Pie

Serves about 8

Prep time: 10-15 minutes

Bake time: 20-25 minutes

Total time: 40 minutes


1 lb hamburger

  • 1 lb hamburger (ground beef)
  • 1 Tbsp minced onion
  • 1 can crescent rolls
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 8 oz of sour cream
  • 8 oz of Mexican style shredded cheese
  • ½ cup crushed Doritos chips
  • ½ cup crushed Fritos chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Brown the hamburger meat with minced onion.
  3. When hamburger meat is done, add in taco seasoning. Follow the directions on the back of the packet as to how much water is needed to prepare it. 
  4. In a greased 8×8 pan or pie pan, press the crescent rolls into the bottom of the pan to form a crust. Push the crescents up to the sides of the pan to create about a ½ crust. Prebake the crust in the prepared oven for about 5 minutes.
  5. When the crust is done baking, take the pan out of the oven. Pour the crushed Doritos chips evenly over the crust. 
  6. Layer the prepared taco meat into the pan, on top of the crushed Doritos and crescent roll crust. 
  7. Spread the sour cream evenly on top of the taco meat. 
  8. Layer the cheese evenly on top of the sour cream.
  9. Pour crushed Fritos chips on top of the cheese in an even layer.
  10. Bake for about 20 minutes.
  11. Take it out of the oven, slice and enjoy! *We like to add shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and taco sauce or french dressing. 

This recipe is requested a lot! I always seem to have ingredients on hand for it, which is a definite plus! Savannah and I documented the step-by-step process together for you to follow along. 

  • While you are preheating the oven to 375 degrees, brown the hamburger meat. When that is done, add in the taco seasoning. I used mild seasoning, but choose what you like best!
  • Press the crescent rolls into your pan to form a crust. Prebake the crust for about 5 minutes. Then, take it out of the oven and spread the crushed Doritos chips on top.
  • Layer the taco meat on top of the prepared crust.
  • Spread the sour cream evenly over the top of the taco meat.
  • Layer the shredded cheese evenly on top of the sour cream. Then top with crushed Fritos chips. Bake for about 20 minutes.
  • Take out of the oven, slice and top with: shredded lettuce, tomatoes, and taco sauce or french dressing.

TIP: Sometimes when we make tacos at home, I make a couple pounds of hamburger at a time, season it with taco seasoning, and freeze back some. This is super handy when I want to make this recipe during a weeknight.
