    Denise!'s Note:

    Ground beef, peppers, corn, onions and cheeses all snuggled up like a pot pie between two crusts!Barry Conway submitted this winning entry to Emeril's Pie Contest. I watched him make this the other night and decided to try it. It's easy to see why this pie was a winner! It is just oustanding and a snap to put together. A great family meal, I would suggest a guacamole salad on the side. Watch the cook time! I only baked for 20 minutes.

      DH says this recipe deserves more than 5 stars. I used fresh peppers and onions and cooked them right with the ground beef. Will be making this again.

      We absolutely loved this! Very easy to prepare and so tasty! Just three of us in the house and only one piece of pie left. I'll definitely make this again.

      This was very good. I really saw no point in using two different skillets (did I read that right?) so I just browned the onion with the meat (omiting peppers), drained, then added the rest of the ingredients. This was a great spin on both taco casserole and pot pie.
