My family loves taco night. We like to mix it up and sometimes make quesadillas, enchiladas or nachos.

This time around I decided to make a pot pie. I’ve made this chicken pot pies before in individual servings and they loved it. I’ve also made turkey pot pies, which are equally good!

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.

If you are looking for more savory puff pastry recipes how about trying this puff pastry sausage arugula pizza or these mexican corn cups!
