Puff Pastry Taco Pot Pie makes getting dinner on the table a total snap. Bonus points: it totally works for Taco Tuesday AND One Dish Wednesday.
To make this meal go a little easier I decided to make it in a large portion instead of individual sizes. I didn’t really have to change too many things just my serving dish.
For this recipe I went with ground beef. You can also use ground turkey, ground chicken or shrimp! I can’t wait to give the shrimp version a try!
My taco pot pie is similar to southwestern tacos. Mainly because I decided to add black beans and corn to it.
I wanted to add a little kick to them by tossing in some tomatoes with green chilies. If you wanted to add a little more spice you could add red pepper flakes to your taco meat or jalapenos!
Wouldn’t that be delicious?
For the puff pastry I used the last of my roll that I had from Trader Joe’s. It did ok but I think you really need to be mindful of how long you allow your pastry to thaw.
Make sure is is thawed enough for you to handle but not too thawed where it breaks on you. I would recommend allowing it to thaw no more than 20 minutes. Then roll it out so you can place it over the top of your pie.
The pastry that I used ended up being really large so I had to cut the edges off before I pressed them down over the pie.
Lastly, my oven cooks unevenly so half the top of my pastry was brown before the other half. A simple solution was to cover the brown half with foil. This made it cook more evenly.
