Nacho Pie


#ourtablestories | Vol 32

The last time we make this Nacho Pie it is for a mini Movie Party on the Cinco De Mayo Day! You can make this Nacho Pie for a Movie Night (like us) or you can make it for a football match. Its a ideal snack for the beer. Nachos is one of those universal foods that everyone loves, whether health conscious or not! We add a generous amount of nacho, minced beef and salsa making this Nacho Pie. xoxo, Le Plain Canvas.


1 tbsp olive oil 1 white onion, diced 2 garlic cloves 400 g ground mince beef (use lean!) 28 g packet Taco Seasoning 1/2 tsp black pepper 700 g tomato pureed canned tomatoes 1/2 cup water 400 g canned mixed beans, drained 3 – 4 soft tortillas 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese 70 g corn chips Sour cream to serve

Step 1 : Preparation

Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the garlic and onion, and cook until translucent. Then, cook them by adding in the beef, breaking up into pieces, until browned. Lastly, with Taco Seasoning and pepper about halfway through browning the beef. Add the tomato passata, water, and beans. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened but still very saucy. Remove from heat.

Step 2 : Assembly

Lay a tortilla in a pie dish (24 cm / 9-inch diameter). Use a slotted spoon to top with just under 1/2 the meat. Try to avoid using too much sauce so sort of “shake” each spoonful to drain out the sauce. Top with another tortilla + torn/cut pieces of another tortilla to cover completely. Adding the remaining meat, again avoiding the sauce. Lastly, with remaining tortillas, then pour over all the sauce (and any residual meat).

Step 3 : Into the oven

Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. If you’re worried about overspill, place it on a baking tray. Remove from the oven, cover with corn chips then scatter with cheese. Bake until the chips are a bit golden and the cheese is melted – 10 to 15 minutes. Serve, topped with Pico De Gallo and Sour Cream on the side if using.

We filled out the beef filling with mixed beans but you can substitute with any type of beans you want.

Vol 31 | Nacho Pie

You will find the filling very saucy. The reason is that the extra sauce is used to top the final layer. We spoon to scoop out meat for the layers without too much sauce, then pour the sauce over the final layer. SO TASTY! We could eat this every night. We just adore Mexican food. Now get ready with you beer and start snacking on this Nacho Pie now. xoxo, the sisters.
