I whipped this together tonight when I had completely drawn a blank on supper. This turned out incredibly well, even considering the fact I was lost to start with. The heat level is a lil up there w/ this dish, even w/ a mild taco seasoning. Please, taste and adjust accordingly. Any type of ground meat can be used, or even omitted and replaced w/ beans. I've fallen in love w/ this meal and hope u do too.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Saute onions and garlic w/ EVOO over medium heat in a medium size pot for about 3 minutes, should still be crisp. Add ground meat, using a potato masher to get out large lumps. Drain meat.
2
Add picante sauce, cheese, olives and taco seasoning to pot. Mix while meat continues to drain. Once all grease has been removed, stir meat, onion and garlic into sauce mixture.
3
Roll bottom crust out in 9in pie pan. I prefer glass. Press crust down to fit pan. Pour in meat mixture, smoothing. Roll top crust over mixture, crimping edges and cutting vent holes. Brush w/ egg wash, sprinkle w/ italian seasoning or parsley and bake. Allow to rest @ least 10 minutes before serving.
