{Recipe} Vegetarian Taco Pie

I knew there was a reason I wanted to whip up my own taco seasoning and this was it.
My version of Vegetarian Taco Pie is quick, filling and delicious.
1 frozen pie crust
1 pound of Beefless Ground (I use Trader Joe's brand)
olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 can of black beans (rinsed)
1 cup of shredded cheese (I used light Mexican blend)
 Pre bake the pie shell according to the package directions.
In the meantime, saute onions and peppers with some olive oil until softened, add the Beefless Ground and stir to mix. 
Add black beans and taco seasoning plus 1/4 cup of water, bring to boil then reduce heat, stirring to combine.
 Remove pre baked pie crust from oven.  Transfer the beefless/bean mixture to the pie crust. Top with cheese and return to oven.
Bake at 350F for about 25 minutes until the crust has turned golden brown and cheese is melted.
 Cool to wire rack and cut immediately to serve.
This was a hit with the family!
It's easily adaptable to your taste and you can even add ground beef or turkey or just do all beans(which I'm going to try next time).

This looks delicious....when trying to eat healthy, Mexican is one of the most difficult things to stay away from for me....this makes it possible to "cheat"! Thanks for sharing!

This is great! We are trying to do an "international night" every Tuesday - I'll have to add this to our list of international recipes to try! (I think I should rename this night by the way - since it is always Mexican night!)

I have missed several posts and need to catch up! But first I want to know if you guys are grilling anything vegetarian for 4th of July. :) We're going to be grilling at my mom's house and all I can think to do is veggie kabobs.
So I love veggie tacos! :) This looks so amazing. I'm going to try it one day over the weekend and let you know how it turns out. :)
