I love casseroles and pies and such, where you can blend ingredients and get entirely different flavors just by changing an ingredient. Recently I made and canned some homemade salsa. We were so happy with it that we’ll be making more very soon, especially because it’s all gone. I decided I wanted to incorporate some salsa in a meat pie that I like to make. I changed a couple of things up and wound up with an easy to make, tasty pie that had a definite Mexican feel to it. Check it out.
INGREDIENTS

  • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  • 1x 15.25 ounce can of corn, drained
  • 16 ounces salsa
  • 4x pie crusts
  • 8 oz shredded Mexican cheese
  • butter

This recipe makes 2 pies, and takes just under an hour to make from start to finish.
DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 425.
Brown the ground beef.
While the ground beef is cooking, place one pie crust in the bottom of each pie plate.
Place cooked ground beef into a large bowl.

Pinch the crusts around the edges.
Brush the crust with a light layer of butter. (Or if you prefer use an egg wash.)
Place a couple of slits on the top of the crust. I usually make four.

Bake the pies for 40 minutes.
Let cool for 5-10 minutes or so before serving.
That’s it!
One of the best things about this pie is that I didn’t need to add any seasonings, it picked up plenty from the salsa and cheese.

i make something really similar to this, except that we are vegetarian so i don’t use ground beef. i replace the ground beef with black beans. Also, instead of the pie crust i use the large flour tortillas…makes it a really quick ‘cheater’ type recipe. 🙂 i put about 1/2 cup enchilada sauce in the bottom of the dish, place a flour tortilla in it, add the bean/salsa mixture and then place the other tortilla on top. i use a butter knife, to ‘tuck’ the tortilla all the way around, add another 1/2 cup enchilada sauce on top and cheese. Serve it with sour cream, salsa and avocado it is sooo good!
