Looking for some Tex-Mex comfort food? Look no further. This is delicious! The iron skillet gives the edges of the corn bread a nice crunch. The meat, bean and veggie topping is flavorful and the cheese on top brings it all together. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Black Bean Pie

Step-by-Step

  2. While oven heats, brown ground meat, mixing in onions and bell peppers as you get them chopped up. Add the taco seasoning. When the meat is done, mix in the black beans, olives and salsa and set aside.
