Easy Ninja Foodi Taco Pie
This is such a great kid-friendly and great family meal. I loved making this with my kids. And it’s such a fun recipe; everyone will love it. And best of yet, it assembles in minutes, and if you want to fry up the beef earlier in the day and assemble it with the kids, that works too!!
I actually made two versions of this, one used corn tortillas since my oldest son has celiac disease, and I wanted to make his an Air Fryer Gluten-Free Recipe.
What Type Of Tortillas To Use For Taco Pie
Anything works in this recipe, from flour tortillas, which are traditionally used in Mexican food, to gluten-free versions of corn tortillas, to the low-carb version of tortillas. The best version I have had is the Mama Lupe Low Carb Tortilla, which tastes almost like the flour version. (affiliate link)
How To Make Ninja Foodi Air Fryer Taco Pie
There are a number of steps to make this, but they are all very easy.
The first step, which can be done ahead of time if you are looking to come home and assemble the taco pie, is to brown your ground beef and then add the taco seasonings. Just grab your skillet, combine all of the ingredients into the skillet, brown your meat, and follow your taco seasoning packet’s directions. That will be your taco meat.
You can use ground turkey, or ground chicken if you want a slightly healthier version.
You will then layer your taco pie into a springform pan, which is the easiest pan to use since you need to get the pie out after cooking. Otherwise, you will have a beast of a time getting it out.
I would recommend spraying the bottom of the springform pan with cooking spray, adding your tortilla shell on the bottom of the pan, and starting layering;
- Refried Beans
- Taco Meat
- Shredded Cheese
Continue to layer until you have used up your ground meat. The last layer is shredded cheese.
Then set the pan into the air fryer or Ninja Foodi and set the temperature to 400 degrees F, for about 5 minutes. Remove once the cheese has melted on top.
