Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Mexican Pie

I started out this evening planning to make enchiladas from a recipe I came across on a blog, but then when I thought about the assembly I was reminded of the Mexican pie I used to make.  And though I didn't have the right sized tortillas I went ahead and made the pie instead of the enchiladas.

Here are the ingredients:
1 onion chopped
1 red pepper chopped
1 16 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper
shredded cheese
 salsa ( I used one jar of Emily's salsa)
corn or flour tortillas
1 cooked chicken breast

I sauteed the onions and pepper in olive oil then added them to the beans, corn, chicken and spices.

Into a pie pan I poured some of the salsa.  Since my tortillas were small I layered 3 on top of that.  Then put on half the bean mixture and covered it with cheese.  I put on 3 more tortillas and the rest of the bean mixture and cheese then topped with three more tortillas and the rest of the salsa.  All of that was covered with cheese.

I baked this for 30 minutes in 350ยบ oven but remembered later that it can be cooked in the microwave.

 You can see the layers.

See what other cooks have made this week at Robin's Garden of Eden.

NOrma - it was filling. Dan had two servings and I had 1.5. Now debating whether to freeze the leftovers.

Boy that looks yummy! Very nice combination of flavors. I will have to tell "The Italian" about this. He loves this type of food!

Looks good to me but makes way too much. WE would be eating it for a week. Maybe could mix all the filling together and freeze it in smaller portions them make a little casserole for a meal. Just a thought of how I could use it.
