The ultimate in comfort food, this Impossible Taco Pie is layered with ground beef, Rotel, cheddar cheese and a Bisquick topping. It’s an easy family dinner recipe.

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 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…the 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.

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 dish (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 fat. Add in the 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.
