How to Make Mexican pot pie

Step-by-Step

  1. Slice the onion and sauté in the butter. About ½ way through, add 1 tablespoon vinegar. This will take about 30 minutes….you’ll want this to be all golden but not burned.
  2. Remove from pan and set aside.
  3. In same pan brown the sirloin, leave the butter/vinegar that is left at the bottom of the pan, till the sirloin is done, then drain….. “ you’ll get another level of flavor doing this” .
  4. When that is all browned add the garlic, corn, peppers, onions, cumin, uncooked rice, oregano, ginger, salt, beer and either home made sauce or you can use tomato sauce seasoned with Mexican spices***.
  5. Cook this till it has thickened somewhat. Let it cool completely once it is all cooled add the beaten eggs.
  6. Cook and mash the potatoes “ I used left over potatoes” once the potatoes are hot add the cheese and mix thoroughly. Set aside.
  7. To assemble spray pie pan if it is not a non stick kind, put the meat mixture into a pie pan, top with the potatoes. Place this on a baking sheet and bake 350 for about 30 minutes “or till it is hot and the potatoes have started to brown” this will depend on your oven so baking times may vary….
  8. Let this stand for about 10 minutes before cutting into it.
