This zesty pie combines ground beef, stewed tomatoes, kidney and pinto beans with zippy seasonings, all tucked into a flaky golden crust. It's a great dish to take to a potluck—it slices so nicely, you can easily dish it up for a crowd. —Liza Taylor
Meet the Cook: There were seven of us children when I was a girl, and I was the second oldest. I began cooking as soon as I could reach the stove and stir a pot.
I'm a widow, so I usually make this for large gatherings. It's so quick and easy. The recipe was given to me when my husband and I were caring for foster children who enjoyed beef dishes. I've been fixing it ever since.

The calendar on my kitchen wall is often busy with church work, 4-H leader meetings and the school activities of our three daughters...so this recipe is perfect for our busy family. I just add fruit or raw vegetables for a complete meal in just a few minutes.—Gwen Clemon, Soldier, Iowa
