Taco Bell is going national with thier breakfast menu, but they aren’t the only ones that can get creative with “Mexican” food. A staple at the always-open Guyism Grill is the Taco Pie, with layers of everything a growing boy needs for 5th Meal.
After a week of nothing but desserts at the Guyism Grill, it was time to finally feed you a meal again. And what could be better than tacos? I didn’t want to just change up the Jagermeister Taco recipe though. I went a completely different direction… up.
Check out other ridiculous recipes from the Guyism Grill.
It turns out that Pillsbury is good for more than just Bacon Cinnamon Rolls and Cheesy Bacon Bombs. In fact, you don’t need to include bacon at all! Of course you can if you have some lying around. Unlike Fight Club, Taco Pie has no rules.
At the last second I decided to throw in enchilada sauce. Chef Rick Bayless has a huge presence in Chicago though so it was front and center when I was shopping. I’m a sucker for a thick red sauce on my mysterious Amexican creations, but feel free to skip it. Like I said, no rules.
Well if that isn’t the best partially constructed pie I’ve ever seen. The nice layer of Doritos between the crescent roll crust and taco-seasoned meat really brings out its eyes. Just be sure you’re not putting it in the oven like this. That would make for a terrible dinner. Only one person would be happy, but at least it would probably be you.
Now it’s starting to look like an actual meal. In fact, it sort of looks like a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza. It’s obviously nothing like a Mexican Pizza because people will actually want to eat this, but visually they’re similar at the moment.
Don’t be shy adding additional toppings to your super pie, just be sure it’s something you want to be cooked. Sour Cream is questionable but works quite well. The magical fruit is an obvious possibility, but I’d probably put them under the meat where they belong.
Who needs a fancy lattice pie crust when you’ve got a blanket of spicy Doritos and a mountain of cheese? If actual pies had those I might actually start eating them. As it stands now, though, I’ll still to making amazing Taco Pie. Oh, and Walking Tacos. I’m still making those because my inner child demands it.
I first spotted a recipe for this on Facebook and adapted it from Tess Knows Best. Hers looks much more atttactive than mine, but I’m not going for a blue ribbon over here. I’m trying to feed a nation of hungry 20-year-olds.
