Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9x13" baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Let pie crusts stand at room temperature for 15 min. Meanwhile, cook ground beef in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned. Drain beef. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, olives, onion, cilantro, cheese, salsa verde, taco seasoning, and garlic. Mix ingredients and set aside. Spread one pie crust across the bottom of the baking dish. Brush crust with a portion of the egg. Spread beef mixture evenly over crust. Top beef with second pie crust; you can trim the crust to fit the dish, or let the edges hang over the sides. Cut slits in top crust and brush with remaining beaten egg. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until the crust turns golden brown.
