Layered Tortilla Pie Recipe

Layered Tortilla Pie Recipe

This is a nice dish for potluck dinners and picnics—my family really devours it whenever I serve it! My sister used to serve tortilla pie at the hunting and fishing lodge she operated in Colorado.—Delma Snyder, McCook, Nebraska
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce

  • 1 can (2-1/2 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained, optional
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • 6 corn tortillas (6 inches)
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 1. In a skillet, brown beef and onion; drain fat. Add tomato sauce, garlic, chili powder, salt and pepper. Add olives if desired; mix well. Simmer for 5 minutes.

"This is similar to a premade kit you can buy in the grocery store, which is a family favorite. They enjoyed this just as well. I left out the olives."

"I can make this dish New Mexico style, all of you all would be on your knees to know the recipe, with mexican rice, beans and ground beef smothered in New Mexico red or green chili it would be to die for. It's ranchero enchilada style not a layered tortilla pie."

"My mom made this recipe when I was very young. She made it in stacks for a while and then turned it into what she called New Mexican Lasagna (in a cake pan and layered as this recipe). I am now a senior citizen but have used this similar recipe for decades. The only difference is that she layered the tortillas by over lapping and piling the other ingredients in layers and then slicing as one would with lasagna.. She did add a layer of refried beans, but otherwise, the recipe is very, very similar. It is, and has been a big favorite in our family for many, many years. Thank you!"
