Recipe by Wendy H.

A savory meat pie courtesy of my Aunt Stephanie that's yummy any time of year, and good either hot or cold the next day. Dress it up with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato, guacamole, shredded cheese, etc., or make a side salad out of these items, and you've got tacos (sort of) without the mess.
