Tex -Mex Pot Pie

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

This recipe was adapted from "The Spaghetti Sauce Gourmet". This could be made vegetarian by using soy crumbles instead of the ground beef. Very quick and easy.

Great idea. I would use my own chili recipe, then top it with a corn bread batter and bake it until the corn bread is done, oh, cheese is in the corn bread mix along with green chilis or fresh jalepeno.
