Wonderful recipe to get your family out of the "same old boring stuff" habit. If you like to kick it up a notch, add a can of El Pato for one of the tomato sauces. I used half a can of El Pato in the crust and the other half in the filling, Just make sure the liquid measurement is equal to the recipe. Super comfort food to make you happy it's dinner time!
