Very tasty! I fiddled with some of the ingredients, but stuck to the recipe for the most part. I used 1 can of black beans and 1 of red kidney beans, and no green onion. Also used jalapeno pepper jack shredded cheese instead of cheddar. And chili powder instead of just cumin.
Yes, it does come out a little messy, but the flavor is excellent and it is very filling. I think the key is reducing the veg mixture quite a bit before filling the pie.
Sorry to say, we weren't crazy about this recipe. I used 1 can of pinto beans, 1 can of black beans. It was a lot of fussing with very ho-hum results. Flavor was tepid, and the "pie" completely falls apart upon serving. Would not repeat...but fun to try!
Turned out perfect for our daytona party..everyone loved it..Thanks
