NACHO POT PIE

My son actually came to me with this idea for dinner. He’s 10 years-old and helps make our tacos for Taco Tuesday every week. But this week he wanted to switch things up with this Nacho Pot Pie.Nacho Pot Pie - a taco flavored filling of black beans and corn topped with a crushed tortilla chip crust. the-girl-who-ate-everything.com

The base of any good pot pie is a good roux. To give this one a Mexican twist we added some Old El Paso taco seasoning to the butter before adding the flour.

Make sure you slowly whisk in the beef broth and milk to get a thick and creamy sauce.

Instead of a crust, the filling is topped with crushed tortillas and melted cheese.

Everyone loved it! Of course nachos must have sour cream, green onions, and tomatoes on top.
