Try serving the filling hot with potatoes or toast, or with a breadcrumb topping, or serve in a home made tortilla.
- 1 lbs lean ground pork (or try beef)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- ½ tsp ground allspice
- ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
- ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 1 pinch cloves
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1½ cups cooked red kidney beans mash
- double-crust pastry
- Stir-cook ground meat and onion until meat is no longer pink (regular ground meat is much less expensive than lean).

- This will take about 15 minutes.
- Stir in mashed beans and simmer until liquid is just evaporated, about another 15 minutes.
