Corn bread mix speeds the preparation of this Southwestern entree with beef and black beans. My husband really likes it, and guests seem to enjoy this unique Mexican dish. For a change of pace, try topping it with lettuce, guacamole or extra salsa. —Laura Morris, St. Joseph, Missouri

"I added taco seasoning to the ground beef, as well. My pie pan overflowed in the oven, but I think I just used too small of a pan. Oh, well - it still tasted delicious!"

"Loved this... I made it with Boca crumbles instead of ground beef for a yummy vegetarian dish. I'll make it again with ground beef, though, when my vegetarian son isn't home. I also added a half-can of corn. I used a 9.5 inch pie plate and there was almost enough filling for a second pie!"

"When I went to the cupbord I saw that I did no thave any black beans so I used a can of red beans in chili sauce instead and it was very good. I added taco seasoning to the burger mixture and topped with chopped geen onion and lime juice."

"Overall the dish was really good. I followed the recipe as stated & added a little corn because we love black bean/corn combinations! The bottom of the dish was a little mushy, from the salsa I guess so it made it a little difficult to serve nicely. I think it needed some more spice. For toppings, we used shredded lettuce, sour cream & hot pepper cheese. Next time think I'll add some jalepenos too...Will make again, but will def tweak the recipe."
