Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Pimientos are red peppers that grow very much like the more common green bell pepper. These versatile peppers are of the sweet (versus hot) variety. They are commonly sold in jars, stuffed in olives and dried and ground to make paprika.
  • tip 2
    Instead of the frozen crabmeat or shrimp, use either a 6-ounce can of crabmeat, drained and cartilage removed, a 4-ounce can of shrimp, well rinsed and drained, or a 6-ounce can of tuna, drained.
  • tip 3
    Make it Impossibly Easy Tuna Pie when you use a 6-ounce can of tuna, drained, instead of the crabmeat.
  • tip 4
    If you keep canned crabmeat or shrimp on hand, go ahead and use it in this easy dinner pie.
  • tip 5
    Savory Impossibly Easy Pies can be covered and refrigerated up to 24 hours before baking. You may need to bake a bit longer than the recipe directs since you’ll be starting with a cold pie. Watch carefully for doneness.
