Taste of Mexico Pie

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Aunt Willie

Inspired by a cheeseburger pie recipe clipped from a magazine,I made this up while hungry for tacos. I didn't have any taco shells, so I used pie crust.

Heaven on a plate. I made pie crust from scratch. I didn't have taco seasoning, so I used a little Goya Sazon seasoning along with cumin and basil, then mixed in a little flour dissolved in chicken broth. Things thickened up just fine. I gave the pie 10 minutes to set up once removed from the oven. We couldn't stop eating this! So delicious. Went well with a big salad and pinto bean saute. This one is a winner!
