Black Bean Tortilla Pie Recipe

Black Bean Tortilla Pie Recipe

I found this southwestern entree awhile ago but decreased the cheese and increased the herbs originally called for. It's one of my toddler's favorite meals. She always smiles when she sees it on the table. —Wendy Kelly of Voorheesville, New York
