My 12 year old daughter Deidra brought the basic recipe home from an after-school cooking class and I jazzed it up a bit! If you can't find a deep-dish pie crust, use 2 regular ones.

Very tasty and quick to make. I omitted the brown sugar. I put a crust on top. And don't forget to saute onions and garlic with the beef! Read More

I followed the recipe to the letter and this one completely bombed. I think the problem here is there are too many flavors trying to compete. It wasn't bad looking when done but it kind of tasted like the remains of a cookout all mixed together. Read More

This recipe was quick and easy. The boys (4 teenagers) all liked it but said it was a little too sweet. Next time I'll cut back or omit the brown sugar. Otherwise a nice change from the usual hot dog fare. Read More

I cooked this in a cornmeal crust (like a tamale pie) instead of the pie crust. At first I didn't like the taco flavor in this but by the second day the flavors seemed to meld together better. Read More

My daughter loved it but wanted more crust and more hotdogs I would add the top crust and throw in 5 or 6 dogs instead of 4 it is hotdog pie after all. Read More

Awesome!!! This is our new cookout pie. It combines some of our favorite cook out food. So when we don't feel like pulling out the grill or weather prohibits we simply make this cookout pie. Read More

Sorry we did not like this one. The beans and the sugar made it too sweet for our taste. Read More
