CRaZy CRuSt MeXiCaN Pie

This is one of those in a pinch, last minute recipes. The ingredients are fairly simple and you most likely already have most of them. If you have precooked hamburger from the freezer, it comes together even faster. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Crazy Crust Mexican Dinner
For the crust:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sour cream
1 egg

For the filling:
1 pound ground beef, browned & drained
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons chili powder
1 can chili or kidney beans (16 oz)
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz)

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a 10" pie pan. Throw all the crust ingredients into a bowl and lightly mix with a fork. It will look weird and lumpy. Please do not panic. That's why it's called a "crazy" crust :-) Spread the batter very thinly on the bottom of your pie pan and more thickly on the sides up to 1/4" from the pan's rim.

Combine the filling ingredients and spoon into the crazy crust. Bake 15-25 minutes, or until the crust is golden and the filling slightly bubbly.

Top with lettuce, tomatoes and grated cheese. Serve with whatever additional taco toppings your family enjoys: guacamole, sour cream, salsa, olives, etc.
