Simple Layered Taco Pie

All the credit for Simple Layered Taco Pie go to a friend of mine who whipped it up for his family and posted a picture to Facebook.  You know who you are, and I thank you for the inspiration.

I of coursed tweaked the recipe just a bit adding in a can of diced jalapeno’s and a can of hot enchilada sauce because my husband and I like our food spicy.

I needed to make 2 pies to serve my family of 5 but you can easily adapt the recipe for more or less people. I liked the addition of  toppings on the side. For instance I took my piece out and then topped it with chopped lettuce, fresh tomatoes, cilantro and a dab of sour creme and salsa, but you could serve it plain if you want.

Simple layered taco pie is an excellent dish for a busy night. It does not take long to prepare and it looks a bit more elegant than plain old taco’s. My husband loves taking leftovers to work with him the next day as it reheats well.

  9. top each pie plate with a third tortilla and sprinkle with the cheese you put to one side.
