Amigo Pie: Your New Favorite Meal
Amigo Pie is one of those go-to recipes, when you get home from work and just want to make a quick but tasty dinner. The first time I had this dish, I was hooked. The crust is a savory cornbread style, seasoned with cheddar and black olives. It gets a wonderful crusty bottom that holds in the flavor of the filling.
Tips and Tricks for Amigo Pie
When serving Amigo Pie, let it sit in the pan for about 5 minutes after you pull it from the oven to let the crust finish setting up. Top it with a dollop of sour cream and some chopped green onions to finish off the dish.
If you’d like to make Amigo Pie even faster to make, brown the meat and onions ahead of time and freeze. When you get home, make the crust and sprinkle the frozen meat mixture over the top. Bake as usual for an easy meal.

I’ve made Amigo Pie for a lot of different events. It’s great for a potluck, but my favorite is for slumber parties. Kids absolutely love Amigo Pie!

It will be just as good as it was the first time.
