Meh. This was just so-so. Because I am partly to blame for my dissatisfaction, I'll give this one last attempt before giving up altogether. My main complaint is that my crust ended up soggy. Even tho I pre-baked it for the entire time suggested on the package (rather than half the time as Carole directed), it was mushy. I mixed my beans / beef together and think this might have been the reason why (don't do this!). My only other changes were to add a small can of diced green chiles / taco seasoning packet (followed instructions on package) to my meat / bean mixture and brown my onion and beef together. I purchased a box of (2) refrigerated pie crusts, but only made one deep dish pie (in my stoneware pie pan). In retrospect, I think frozen pie crusts would have worked better.
They are just the right size for this recipe. My dish was too big (my pie fillings didn't fill my dish as I would have liked them to...). Topped with green onion, tomato, sour cream and salsa and served with a side of Mexicorn, this was an "OK" dinner. Thanks for sharing, Carole! :-)
