    Julie in TX's Note:

    My mother found this recipe in a Pillsbury Bake-Off cookbook in the mid 1960's. It is sooooo good! Our family always liked it with more heat, so we sometimes added jalepeno peppers or served it with salsa on the side, but it's good as is.

      Julie, the pie filling & topping were very tasty. I did add an extra 1/2 tsp of chili powder and a drained can of green chilis to spice it up a bit. It was the crust part that I didn't care for. To me it didn't have much taste and I felt it detracted from the great filling. I served picante sauce and sour cream on the side. I think I will make this again sometime and next time make a cornbread topper because we really loved that filling and cheese topping.

      Very Tex-Mex! Not a strong flavor, but enough spice to tickle your taste buds. The Cheese topping and cornmeal crust makes the dish. I rolled the crust on Waxed paper and it was very easy to handle. I used a square 8x9 inch baking dish and added green chillies. This plus some chips and salsa makes a super supper! Thanks for this Julie, it is a winner in my book!
