I loved this! So easy and really delicious. I had to use extra pie crusts, and word to the wise - definitely let the meat cool a bit before you put it in the pie crust, otherwise it gets gooey and is difficult to manipulate without ripping.

Very easy dinner, LorenLou! I omitted the green chiles for the kids and used black olives instead. Both hubby and I agreed that they were yummy although we think we'd prefer them with pizza dough than pie crust, but that's just a personal preference. Thanks for a great idea!
