I was inspired by THIS recipe for this creation. It was really really good....actually a little surprised how good it really was and pretty simple to make as well.
1 ready to bake pie crust (*see notes below)
1 Tbsp butter
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pound ground beef
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 packet of taco seasoning
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 pint salsa ( I used my own salsa that I caned last fall)
1 can black beans
1/2 cup of olives
1 cup of shredded cheese
lettuce, tomatoes and sour cream for garnish
I did not have a ready to bake pie crust so I made my own since it was much easier than bundling both kids up and going to the store....yeah I'm lazy like that.
pie crust recipe:
3 cups flour
2 tsp salt
2 tsp white vinegar
1 cup shortening
2/3 cup milk
Combine flour and salt, dice in the shortening and vinegar then add milk last. Knead till well combined!
This is what it should look like.
I used a glass baking dish lid to cut out the circles.
For the stuffing. Brown the butter garlic and onion till soft then add the meat salt and pepper let it brown up. Drain the meat well (this is important because you do not want much liquid in the pie) I used a strainer and just let it sit for a bit. Place it back in your skillet and add the taco seasoning and salsa let it cook for a couple more minutes till most of the liquid is gone.
It should look something like this.
You can then layer your pie. I kinda used bits and peaces of leftover cheese some shredded some sliced; Provolone, sharp cheddar.
All ready for the oven. Poke holes with your fork on top to let out any steam. Bake @ 375 degrees for 45 minutes or till crust is lightly browned.
Mmmmmmm....yum....that's right I will bite you!!!
