Ingredients
  • 1¼ lb ground beef
  • 1 refrigerated pie crust
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 1 10oz can enchilada sauce
  • 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1½ C refried beans
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 4.5 oz can diced green chilis
  • 1½ shredded mexican cheese
  • 1 tbsp water
Instructions
  1. In a large pot, brown the beef and onion over medium high heat until the beef is cooked. Drain, return to the pot and reduce heat.
  2. Add the taco seasoning, water, diced tomato and diced chilis . Mix well.
  3. Roll out the pie crust and place in the bottom and up the sides of a 9 inch round cake pan.
  4. Add ¾ C of the shredded cheese over the pie crust. Layer with the beef mixture, enchilada sauce, refried beans, and the remaining cheese. Add more cheese if needed to cover the top of the pie with cheese.
  5. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes. If the cheese starts to get too brown, cover the pie with aluminum foil and continue to bake. Allow to sit for 15-20 minutes before serving but for best taste and pie structure, serve next day.
  6. Garnish with green onions, sour cream and taco sauce.
