I made this seven layer tortilla pie and it was a hit! My mom used to make it a lot back in the day but I couldn't find the same recipe she used to use. So, I googled one and I only made a few small changes from the recipe. Essentially you alternate the two layers of mixture with tortilla shells, and each layer gets salsa & cheese as well. I also added a bit of taco seasoning on a few layers for some extra flavor. I like this dish because you could make it in a lot of varieties - add chicken, add ground beef, add other veggies (I debated spinach but decided against it for fear of the unknown) or switch up the types of beans you use. Even refried beans would be great in this!
These pictures aren't actually all that 'flattering' for my lovely dinner, however this is all I have!!
|This is the mixture for one of the layers - mashed white kidney beans, salsa & garlic. I added chopped onion & green pepper.|
|This is the other layer - diced tomatoes, black beans & cilantro. I added corn after this picture was taken as a last minute decision.|
|The final product - a falling over slice of seven layer tortilla pie! Serve with rice, salsa & sour cream. And hot sauce, of course!|
