Earlier this year we made the traditional Bisquick Impossible Cheeseburger Pie. It was a meal everyone enjoyed, so I immediately started thinking up new versions of that easy dinner.

This Impossible Taco Pie uses the same recipe, but switches out a few ingredients to give it a Mexican flair. With taco seasoning, Rotel and cheddar cheese, this is going to become your new favorite Taco Tuesday recipe.

Why you’ll love this taco pie recipe:

  • Kid friendly dinner…if your kids like taco meat, they’ll like this casserole.
  • Comforting Mexican flavors you know and love.
  • Made easily in under an hour.
  • No need for a pie crust…Bisquick forms a top crust to help hold the pie together.

What is Bisquick impossible pie?

Bisquick impossible pie is a classic recipe that was first shared on the back of a box of that famous biscuit mix. The traditional recipe is a mixture of ground beef, cheese, eggs and bisquick mix to hold it all together.

Don’t have Bisquick on hand? Quickly make our homemade biscuit mix with just 4 pantry ingredients.

please note

Don’t get this confused with Impossible Pie. That sweet dessert is a pie recipe that makes its own crust when baked.

How to Make Impossible Taco Pie

  • Prepare. Preheat the oven to 400º Fahrenheit. Spray a 9″ round deep pie pan (or cake pan) with cooking spray.
  • Brown. Using a skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until the beef is no longer pink. Drain off any excess grease. Add in the packet of taco seasoning (try our homemade taco seasoning) and drained Rotel. Mix well and heat through.
  • Layer. Spread the beef mixture in the bottom of the prepared pie plate. Sprinkle the shredded cheese over the top.
  • Mix. In a small bowl, whisk together the Bisquick mix, milk and eggs. Pour evenly over the beef and cheese.
  • Bake. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the middle of the pie is set and the top is golden brown. A knife inserted in the center should come out clean.

If you’re looking for side dishes, try one of these:

Recipe Variations

  • Make this a low carb taco pie by leaving out the Bisquick and lowering the milk to ½ cup. It may not stay together in slices, but it will be a delicious keto taco pie.
  • Use ground chicken or ground turkey in place of the ground beef.
  • Add ½ crushed Doritos to the top of the pie for a twist that the kids will love.
  • Don’t have Rotel? Use about 1 cup salsa instead.

Is there anything I can use other than Bisquick to make GF?

If you’re going to make this, don’t skip the toppings – lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, avocado, cilantro, sour cream, salsa, guacamole… whatever you like on tacos. Without toppings, this looks unappetizing and tastes like meatloaf and taco seasoning.

Very tasty. Family loved it. I added sliced olives and diced onion to meat. Caution: You need A DEEP pie pan. The first time I made it, I used a regular 9 in pyrex pie dish; I was only able to use half of the biscuit batter.

This is an oldie but goodie. I use Carbquick instead of bisquick as my husband is a diabetic. I don’t have the actual numbers, but I’ve used it for years not quite as good as Bisquick but works for his blood sugar. You can use it for anything, I used to have to order from Amazon but Walmart carries it now. I just substitute same amount. I was scrolling for something to use with the ground chuck I had defrosted. Thank you for reminding me of this
