- 1 pound ground beef
- 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced

This is really quite delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and it was wonderful. I love how well it holds together when slicing/serving.

I thought this was pretty good, albeit a tad heaving with the artificial flavoring in the condensed bean soup. Must have been heavy on the seasoning that day in the factory. That said, this recipe was so simple, I can see myself making it again and just customizing it as I go, with what I have on hand. It's basically a reminder that a savory pie for dinner is just a crust and leftovers away!

I haven't made this yet and while I'm sure it's delicious, it is DEFINITELY NOT a French Canadian Tourtiere.A French Canadian Tourtiere DOES NOT include any of the following....condensed soup,picante sauce, black beans,kidney beans,cheddar cheese or ripe olives.While we appreciate our neighbours to the south,it's hard to take seriously a list of CANADIAN recipes which don't come from canadians.I should know..I am a CANUCK.

I had some friends over and made this delicious recipe plus a salad. Every one asked for the recipe.

I make many recipes from ToH that are keepers, but this one is beyond belief...SO GOOD! People, please don't change the ingredients, amounts, or how it is made! The bean with bacon soup is what takes this recipe over the top. It gives a depth of flavor that no one would ever suspect comes from this soup. Also...make sure you use picante sauce and not salsa. They are similar, but picante is cooked and generally spicier. Mild picante is perfect in this, but it also comes in extra-mild, medium, and hot. I bought the Pace brand. I bought Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts and used them in a 10-inch Fiesta pie baker. There was filling left but not enough for another pie. I saved it until the next day, topped it with cheese, heated it in the microwave, and we had it with tortilla chips! Another winner! The filling could easily stand alone as a dip...it is that good. Do yourself a favor and make this!

Very Good! Lightened it up by omitting sour cream, bottom crust, reduced amount of reduced fat cheese, eliminated salt, and used healthy request bean soup. Added guacamole as topping. Will try ground turkey or chicken next time. Still oh so good and easy to make. Putting this one on the guest list.

This is a family favorite especially around the holidays because the recipe makes two pies. I usually leave off the top crust, and sometimes, I have just made a dip out of it omitting the crust and cornstarch and serving it with "Scoops". All good!!!

I made this a little differently than the original, but it still turned out well. I used 1 cup of beef broth instead of the soup because the thought of bean and bacon soup in this just didn't sound appetizing to me at all. I also used 1/2 a pound of ground turkey since I didn't have any ground beef and it was plenty of meat. I was concerned that the filling wouldn't thicken up enough in the oven, so I added all of the filling ingredients except for the cheese and thickened it on the stovetop. My husband and three year old loved it and I will definitely make it again!
