Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef, browned
  • 1 packet of taco seasoning
  • 1 can (15-ounce) corn, drained
  • 1 can (8-ounce) tomato sauce
  • shredded Mexican style 4 cheese blend (as needed)
  • flour tortillas

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
     
  2. Cook and drain the ground beef, then add the seasoning as instructed on the package.
     
  3. Spray a 9 inch pie pan with non stick cooking spray then poor the beef on the bottom.
     
  4. Next, top the beef with the canned corn, and pour the tomato sauce over the corn, evenly spreading it out.
     
  5. Using the flour tortillas, cut them into long, narrow slices and place them lengthwise across the top of the dish, then repeat the same going in the opposite direction. The final result should look like a grid.
     
  6. Lastly, top the tortillas with shredded cheese and bake in the oven. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is nicely melted.

I agree with the comment by Edmund K (below). The recipe did seem a little imcomplete so we made a couple of additions. We included chopped onion and garlic when browning the beef and we used a can of chopped tomatoes plus a little tomato sauce instead of the tin of tomato sauce. We also used fresh corn (because we had some). All together it was tasty and we all enjoyed it with tortillas.

For some reason, this recipe seems to me to be a bit incomplete, like there should be another ingredient or two. Were I to make this (and I probably will), I think I'd add some black beans to the corn, as well as some diced jalapenos. Has anyone made this and tried a layer of tortillas on the bottom to form a sort of crust? I think that would give it a more pie-like feeling.
