Nacho Pie

*This recipe comes from my mama*

First off, I can't even say the name of the recipe without saying it the way my kids do.  Na-CHO pie-eye-eye-eye.  I don't know where it comes from, but they do this with 'nacho cheese' too.  They sit in the bathtub and try to squeeze in tight until they can see their little faces in the chrome.  Then they say over and over and OVER, "Na-CHO chee-ee-ee-eese."  They are weird.  I have no idea why they do it or how it got started.

The only thing I find comical in their weirdness is I too have a thing that runs along the lines of nacho cheese.  My absolute favorite joke has it as the punchline.  When I was a teacher I told this joke every year and found myself laughing hysterically.  Even when no one else was, which rarely happened because you always have at least one kid who feels sorry for you and gives you a courtesy laugh.  So get your courtesy laugh ready 'cause I'm going to tell my infamous joke...

What do you call cheese that isn't yours?

Nacho Cheese!

Now I can add a new line to my all time favorite joke...

What do you call a pie that isn't yours?

Nacho Pie!

So here's the pie that isn't yours...

2 cups crushed Nacho Cheese chips
1 lb cooked and drained ground beef

  • Season cooked ground beef with taco seasoning and tomato sauce.
  • Pressed crescent rolls into a greased pie pan.
  • Sprinkly one cup Nacho Cheese chips on top of crescents.
  • Layer on ground beef mixture.

I fully anticipated taking step by step pictures.  Here's how far I got...

I know.  I'm so awesome!  I captured the first two steps.  You're welcome.  We can't all be overachievers like me, now can we?

Happy Friday!!!
