First, warm olive oil or coconut in a large non-stick frying pan. Cook onion until fragrant, then stir in ground beef and use a spatula to break down the meat into tiny pieces.

First, make sure you grease a deep 9-inch round dishpan with coconut oil. Then, use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked meat from the frying pan to the dishpan.
Don’t add any meat juice, or the pie will be runny. Set aside the pan while you prepare the egg mixture.

Now, beat the eggs in a large bowl along with salsa sauce, heavy cream. Then, stir in half of the shredded cheese.
Finally, pour the egg mixture over the cooked meat in the dishpan. I like to use a spoon to give a gentle stir. This prevents the egg mixture from cooking on the top and having all the meat at the bottom. Add the remaining shredded cheeses on top of the dish.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350F (180C). You know the pie is ready when it is firm on top and sides.
Cool down in the pan for 10 minutes before serving.
