    Used this recipe when first married and have made it since–54 years. Hubby loves it and every couple of years we have Cheeseburger Pie.

    I was thrilled to find this. This card was missing from my card file. I’m sure I’ll find it, but I wanted it now! Thank you for posting it. We love it!

    I have also been making this for years, but the bake time is wrong if the crust isn’t pre-baked. I had a can of chili mac to the mix.

    This has been a favorite of my family for over 40 years. I have this very set of cards! I leave out the onions and add more bell pepper, and we forego the chili sauce topping. But you cook the pie for 30 minutes, not 3.
