" SPAM and POTATO PIE "
Well, it's State Fair time here in New Mexico. I don't enter anymore, but when the fair comes I bring out all the old recipes. Here's one of my family and friends favorite. Spam sponsors on contest every year at the New Mexico State Fair. My family didn't know I put spam in this savory pie. When I told them they were surprised and it's become one of our favorite meals. This is a must try. Surprise your family and friends with this recipe. After they have eaten this savory pie. Then tell them, it made with Spam.
