Black Bean Pie

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Geema

Serve this hearty dish with a dollop of cilantro laden sour cream, some Spanish rice, and a mixed green salad. The ingredients for this recipe make a very small 7 inch pie. If you are using a normal sized pan, you might want to increase the amount of black beans to 2 cans, and adjust only the seasonings accordingly. The chopped onion and peppers can remain the same.

My husband was out when I was preparing this, and returned to see me pulling a 'pie' out of the oven. He anxiously asked me what kind it was and then paled when I said it was Black Bean. However, his expression changed considerably when he tasted it. This is a definate keeper. The flavors are great. It is like bean enchilladas in a pie crust. After starting this recipes, I realized that I didn't have any bottled salsa. I substituted some canned diced tomatoes with green chilies and upped the amount of the other spices a little. I am anxious to try it with salsa.
