These basic single serving “Mexican” flavored pies can be topped with your heart’s or diet’s desire. I have used cheese mixed with corn mush (cooked cornmeal and water) with success. Other ideas include corn chips, rice, or potatoes. You could even cook a pie and turn it over a big bed of lettuce with sour cream, cheese, and tomatoes, for a taco salad! You could do this with ground beef or chicken as well, I'm sure.
