I've made this a few times and it never disappoints. Black beans with the melted cheese and the flaky pie crust, it makes such a winning combination. This recipe is super easy, and can also be premade and frozen. I got the recipe from 28 Cooks


  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 small can green chilies, diced
  • 2 (15 oz) cans black beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt or Adobo seasoning
  • 2 pie shells, unbaked
  • 2 cups shredded cheese


  • Preheat oven to 325 F.
  • Heat oil in large pan. Add onion and green pepper, and saute until tender. Add chilies, beans, salsa, and seasonings. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Place unbaked pie shell in deep dish pie pan. Sprinkle 1/3 of the cheese mixture on bottom. Pour in 1/2 of the bean mixture. Top with 1/3 of cheese, and pour in rest of beans. Cover with remaining cheese and pie shell. Cut vents in top crust.
  • Place into oven and bake 45 minutes, or until pie crust is golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
