  • Bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Serve with salsa and sour cream for garnish.

My husband and I loved this dish. Would suggest using a 9x13 inch dish and reducing the layers to three and using rectangular tortillas. Used Pepper Jack cheese. Also think it might stay in the oven a bit longer so it is hotter. I will definitely make again. Read More

This had no taste whatsoever and was just plain bland. Won't be making this one again. Read More

This was good and easy. However, I'm a big fan of spicy dishes and found this to be slightly bland. Would definately add more spices, perhaps chipolte peppers, to the bean mixture and maybe a layer of salsa inside the pie. Some fresh cilantro would be good too. And the recipes really serves just 4.

What a great "clean out the pantry" dinner! Skipped the olives and peppers added an onion and two cloves of garlic and used a 2 qrt casserole dish. Simplfied the seasoning and just added a packet of taco seasoning. It was so good we forgot to add the sour cream =) Great meatless fast weekday option; it's now on rotation! Read More

Oh my WOW!!!! This was fantastic! I didn't have a deep round cake pan so I used two shallow ones and 6 tortillas (instead of 5). THIS WAS SOOOOOO GOOD! I had a vegan friend over so I substituted tofu cheese and sour cream and my husband couldn't even tell he loved it and he's a meat eater to the core. Next time I might play around--add another jalepeno or some onions. This has become an immediate staple in our house--THANKS! Read More

This recipe is now a staple in our home. Sometimes I cut the tortillas into quaters and just layer them in a square dish. It works just as well. My husband said "This tastes just like Taco Bell only better!" (And he loves Taco Bell!) Read More

This is really good. I made this for my Mom and my really picky sister. Both of them loved it. The filling can also be used for burritos. I had enough filling to do two pie tins. Also try and look for 9 inch tortillas so they fit perfectly in the pan. This save a lot of time cutting the tortillas to fit the pan. Read More
