This recipe combines a ground beef main dish with a rice side dish to make a hearty, satisfying meal. I prepare this pie often because my husband loves it—and he always asks for second helpings!—Denise Simeth, Greendale, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • RICE CRUST:
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons diced pimientos, drained
  • FILLING:
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup taco sauce
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • TOPPINGS:
  • 1 large avocado
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon taco sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup sour cream

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine beef broth, rice, butter and salt. Cover and cook rice according to package directions. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Stir in eggs and pimientos.
  2. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased 10-in. pie plate; set aside. For filling, cook beef until no longer pink; drain. Stir in garlic and cumin; cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in taco sauce and egg. Spoon filling into crust. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, for guacamole, mash avocado with a fork in a small bowl. Stir in the onion, taco sauce and lemon juice; cover and set aside. Remove pie from oven; spread guacamole over meat. Top with sour cream. Bake 5 minutes longer.
