Prepare by heating water, margarine and salt to boiling on stovetop; remove
from heat. Stir in potatoes just until moistened. Let stand about 30
seconds or until liquid is absorbed. Whip with fork until desired
consistency.) Stir in egg and green onions. Spread and press potato mixture
evenly against bottom and side of a 10 inch deep-dish pie plate sprayed
with nonstick cooking spray. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light brown.

Cook ground beef and chopped onion in 10-inch skillet, stirring
occasionally, until beef is brown; drain thoroughly. Stir in remaining

occasionally. Spoon into shell; sprinkle with cheese. Bake 2 to 3 minutes
or until cheese is melted. Garnish with sour cream, green bell pepper,
tomato and avocacdo, if desired.
