I call this my "almost homemade" Mexican dish. Good on a cold night when you've had a busy day as most of the ingredients are bought or you may have on hand as it so quick to bake & serve . You have your main dish and salad all in one! You may prefer to make your own chili in a crock pot and have it ready to use before you make the pie.
