Whats better then left over tacos after an amazing taco dinner. Taco Pie! So Im so blessed with a dear friend that sent home amazing amounts of leftovers. MaryLou makes the best traditional tacos in all of Oregon!
She sent me home with her amazing chicken filling, rice and beans plus much much more.
So this is that solution for all the stale crumbs in the bottom of the corn chip bag. You can also use left over shells.
- 2 cups crushed corn chips
- 1 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican cheese blend
- 2 cups taco meat ( chicken, beef, pork)what ever you have left over.
- 1 cup Mexican rice
- Refries beans
- 1/2 additional cheese
- All taco salad toppings of choice.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Crush chips in bag with rolling pin or meat cleaver
Mix 2 cups crushed chips and 1 cup cheese press into 9×9 glass dish.
Bake 12 minutes.
Top with layers of rice, beans , meat and remaining 1/2 cup cheese.
Bake an additional 15-20 minutes til fully heated thru and cheese is melted.
Serve with favorite toppings. Crust is chewy cheesy and can be as wonderful and your creative toppings!
❤️special thanks to MaryLou Chavira Grever for the wonderful fillings.

I was raised on a large farm in a small community of Long Shop, Virginia. Just a stones throw from Blacksburg, Va and a short drive to the WV boarder. I grew up appreciating Appalachia cooking with low budgets and home grown veggies. What honestly tastes better than a warm tomato out of the garden sliced fat with salt and pepper? Maybe a bowl of good brown pinto beans and cornbread. Or even better grilled trout fresh caught from the creek!
My childhood was a dream... and what has made my passion for food- sharing good meals with good friends and loved ones.
My food always has a story and always in sizes to share.
I now have begun a new adventure with my love Jason, and we created the Bellman and Concierge LLC and reopened the beautiful Oaks Victorian Inn. A childhood home I knew well growing up and now saving for many to enjoy as a Boutique Bed and Breakfast. Cooking for guests and sharing traditions. Come visit us at
Im a county girl with a lot of love to share and I share in my cooking, stories and big hugs. Girl raised in the South cooking- that's me! GRITCOOKING!
