Taco Pie

I made another fantastic recipe.  Woah, nelly.  This was a mixture of an allrecipes(dot)com and my own imagination (what the Bloggess would call ivagination.  She's so hilarious).

First, look!  Yummmm..... It's Taco Pie


note the bottom quarter with no tomatoes, as my older two despise them.

First, make pie shell (or buy one; whatever).  My pie crust is the allrecipes no fail:

2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
mix in bowl.
cut in 1 cup shortening until crumbly.

in separate bowl, mix
1 egg
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/4 cup cold water

Add wet to dry all at once, toss with fork until it forms a ball, refrigerate until ready.
(I'm no good at pie crust but this one was quite acceptable)

1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion
1/2 cup or so of canned tomatoes, drained
1 cup water
1 package taco seasoning
1 can refried black beans
1/2 cup sour cream, mixed with enough milk to make slightly runny
two or three handfuls nacho chips
2 or three handfuls of shredded cheese
peppers, green onions, olives, as desired
diced tomato

Brown beef in pan, add onion, drain.  Add canned tomatoes, water, and taco seasoning.  Simmer for 5 minutes.  Turn heat down low and add black beans.

Meanwhile, cook pie crust.  Place beef and bean mixture in pie, pour sour cream on top in loops or clumps, not too thick or it will take over the pie.  Crunch nachos and place on top of pie, add cheese and toppings (except tomatoes).  Bake at 350 for another 10 minutes to melt cheese.  Remove from oven and garnish with fresh tomato.  Woot!  Six thumbs up yesterday, which is a minor miracle  =)
