    Kay Demonbren's Note:

    This has always been my favorite taco pie. I lost the recipe and naturally searched for it on zaar, but to my surprise, there were no taco pie recipes using a pie crust. I finally found the recipe, so here it is.

      This was a really tasty recipe. Like another reviewer, I couldn't fit all the ingredients into a frozen deep dish pie shell. I used 1/2 the can of refried beans and about 1/2 cup of salsa. I didn't do two layers. I pre-baked the shell. I baked the shell/bean/meat layers for 20 mins and then added the chip layer and cheese and baked an additional 10 mins.

      This was good, but I had some issues. I used a frozen deep dish pie shell and it was too small. After I put the beans & salsa mixture in the crust was already more than half full. I used a pound of ground beef which I think provides a good ratio to the beans. I let the cheese on top get too brown and it didn't seem as if the pie really got warm enough. Next time I will wait to add the cheese on top. I think I better lay some aluminum foil on top so the chips don't get too brown before adding the cheese. Perhaps I will try a pie crust roll and bake it in my quiche dish and see if that holds it better. Thanks for sharing. I will definitely make this again.

      This was good. I only used 3/4lbs ground beef b/c that's what I had on hand. I just mixed the cheese into the bean mixture and that worked well. In the future I'd like to try using black beans with about 1/3 can refried beans (only b/c we love black beans). I omitted the chips since we don't buy them. I used Sour Cream Pastry Sour Cream Pastry. REALLY good! I had made an apple pie with the first half of the pie crust recipe and it was great that I could use the same crust for a dinner food. Thanks for the recipe!
