Tortilla Pie

You can't go wrong with a baked tortilla pie. This dish will make just about anyone happy! This recipe is super quick and easy and you can probably find most of the ingredients in your cupboard. If you have time to cook dried beans and shuck fresh corn this dish will taste even better but there is nothing wrong with using some canned goods. This is a vegetarian recipe but if you are in the mood for some meat just add some ground turkey or beef cooked in taco seasoning. 
1 Pie - Serves 2-3 

4 soft taco tortillas
1 can of black beans rinsed
1 can of re-fried beans
1 tomato, sliced
1/4 cup cilantro
1/2 lime, squeezed
1 cup corn kernels
1/4 cup sliced olives
1/4 cup sliced jalapenos
taco seasoning - see recipe below
Preheat the oven to 425 and prep your fixins. Add the tomatoes in a small bowl with the cilantro and lime juice and set aside. Mix the taco seasoning into the re-fried beans and set aside.
Start the layering process by putting 1 tortilla into a spring form pan and spread a few tablespoons of re-fried beans onto the tortilla then a little corn, black beans and a a sprinkle of cheese. Place another tortilla on top and press it down starting in the middle so the fixins spread around the tortilla. Repeat but this time add half the tomatoes. Repeat again then top the final tortilla with cheese, green onions, jalapenos, and a few black olives. Bake for 15-20 minutes. 
Slice and serve with a dollop of sour cream or Greek yogurt. 
Taco Seasoning: 
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
