Nancy's Mexican Tortilla Pie

This is a recipe from my old boss when I used to work for the Ninth Circuit. She was a vegetarian so this is a great meatless meal. Layered tortilla pie with lots of sauteed veggies. I make it with ground turkey sometimes but usually it is with beans. My youngest who is three can't get enough of this dish. Funny thing for a little one to love but I am glad she does.
The recipe is for one tortilla pie.

Nancy's Tortilla Pie
Grease a pie dish before you begin.

You need several of the medium sized flour tortillas.
Grated Cheese
Frozen Corn
Black Beans
Sliced Olives
Sour Cream 
Cilantro and avocado to sprinkle on top (optional but so worth it)

Saute any nice veggies you have. I use zucchini, peppers,onions, mushrooms, corn, etc. Use what you have on hand. Dice up veggies and saute in olive oil until tender. Add frozen corn at this time and 1 can of rinsed black beans. Pour is some salsa to make the mixture spreadable. Set aside.

The assembly is like making lasagna.
Take greased pie pan and place one tortilla on bottom and spread with veggie mixture. Sprinkle layer of cheese, olives and cilantro.
Repeat and top with a tortilla with a layer of salsa and cheese on top.

Bake at 350 for about 20-25 minutes or until heated through. Top with sour cream and avocado.

Morning! Your pie looks yummy!!! Thanks for sharing. Also, I missed your garden post. I am totally with you on that school of thought. Even though we have an acre property, with what one would assume is plenty of space, we have over 100 trees on our lot, and a LOT of shade. Until a couple of years ago, when the city gave back, an access road to the back of our lot, we didn't have a space that got enough sun to garden. So we tilled the back space, and had our first garden here. That is, in the ground. One year, I did as you do, I put two garden boxes in the front yard, on the side yard really, in a sunny spot. I got terrible flak from a "good friend" who chastised me constantly for doing a garden in the front yard. I don't know why I let that bother me. But I only did it one year. Now, I have taken over a space on my side yard, in the back, close to the garbage cans, so not a premium piece of real estate, but it works. At any rate, I think your front yard garden is lovely!!!!

I used to make tortilla pie because it was faster and easier than making tortillas. I never saw anyone else make it. It looks great!
