Cheesy mexican pie

I’ve always loved Mexican flavours, this pie came about when one night I wanted to have something Mexican but didn’t have tacos or similar in my pantry, so I decided to take a different approach. The bean mix in this pie can be used as a base in many dishes but the addition of the cheese sauce and Smoky Provolone really gave it a special touch! Served with sides of guacamole and kimchi – this added a nice fresh element.
You can use any pie crust of your choice – homemade flaky pastry, pie pastry, shop-bought puff pastry or about 10 layers of phyllo pastry. I used our Gluten free pastry recipe. I like to semi-bake the crust before adding the ingredients to avoid ending up with a soggy crust.
Delicious as the main part of a meal or added to a buffet.
