“This pie is *so* good, if you love onions you will LOVE this, this recipe makes two pies! I most always add in dried chili flakes and a chopped jalapeno pepper in with the ground beef mixture to kick the heat up, one or two more onions won't hurt either, you can use frozen store-bought crusts if desired and the ground beef mixture may be made a day in advance and refrigerated!”
