This is a Pampered Chef recipe for Southwest Taco Pie! Most of my family liked it (I'm not a big red meat eater so that much hamburger was a little too much for me).
1/4 c. plus 1 Tbs. cornmeal, divided
3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1-1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/3 c. milk
1 Tbs. vegetable oil
1 lb. lean ground beef
1 c. chunky salsa
1 c. (4 oz.) shredded colby-jack cheese
1 c. shredded lettuce
1/2 c. chopped tomato
1/4 c. sliced, pitted ripe olives
sour cream (optional)
Preheat oven to 450. Lightly spray 9" stoneware pie plate with vegetable oil. Sprinkle 1 tbsp cornmeal evenly on bottom and sides on pie plate. Combine the remaining cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt. Add milk and oil, stir with fork until mixture forms a ball. Roll out to create crust, shape into pie plate. For filling, brown ground beef, drain. Stir in salsa. Spoon beef mixture into pie crust; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 12-15 minutes or until crust is golden brown & cheese is melted. Top pie with lettuce, tomato and olives. Garnish with sour cream & additional salsa, if you'd like.
