  • Cook meat in large nonstick skillet on medium heat until done, stirring occasionally; drain. Return meat to skillet. Add all remaining ingredients except potatoes and pie shells; mix well. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 30 min., stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Remove and discard bay leaf. Stir potatoes into meat mixture; cool completely.
  • Heat oven to 425ºF. Spoon meat mixture into 1 pastry shell; cover with remaining pastry. Seal and flute edge. Cut several slits in top crust to permit steam to escape.
  • Bake 35 to 40 min. or until pastry is golden brown, reducing oven temperature to 375ºF after 15 min.

Serving Suggestion

Serve topped with additional chili sauce.

Plan Ahead

Double the recipe to make 2 pies. Bake 1 pie to serve, then wrap second (unbaked) pie tightly and freeze up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in refrigerator before baking as directed.

Special Extra

For a shiny golden crust, whisk 1 egg yolk with 1 Tbsp. water until blended; brush onto pastry crust before baking pie as directed.
