Double Decker with a Fork

I’ve had this recipe bookmarked for some time and was excited to finally try it. Matt loved it…he called it “a Double Decker taco that you eat with a fork!” We like those, so that was a good thing! Hope you enjoy! Sept 21-23 001Double Decker Taco Pie

1 lb. ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning
1 can Refried beans
3 large flour tortillas, cut into 4ths
Salsa or Picante Sauce
Shredded cheese
Shredded lettuce
green onions, chopped


Brown meat & drain.  Return to saucepan & add taco seasoning, 3/4 cup water, & stir and simmer until most of the water evaporates. 

Cut tortillas into 4ths and place 4 slices in a pie dish. Cover with refried beans. Top with a layer of taco meat.

Now repeat the process…tortillas, refried beans, & taco meat.  Your last layer should be the remaining tortillas.

Cover with salsa/picante sauce. Then, top with cheese and bake at 350 until bubbly.

Top with shredded lettuce & green onions to your liking.

Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream and guacamole! (or whatever you like!) Sept 21-23 002

P.S. I made this meal in one of Gackey’s baking dishes! I love that I have some of her things! :)
