7 Layer Tortilla Pie (Meatless Monday Recipe)
Fan of meatless family meals?
Sometimes it’s a struggle to figure out easy meals that everyone will enjoy and this one was a winner for my kids! Tortilla pie is a comforting dish to make any day of the week! Plus it’s an impressive dish that uses inexpensive pantry staples which result in a delicious Mexican inspired dinner, with all the melted goodness everyone craves.
Easy to Customize For Your Hungry Crew
Add different varieties of beans depending on what you have on hand and consider throwing in canned corn, jalapeños, sour cream, black olives and/or chopped green onions. Make it as spicy as you’d like and of course you can always add shredded chicken in case that’s what your family prefers!

- 1 – 10 oz. can Ro-Tel diced tomatoes & green chilies

This idea truly isn’t really tedious cooking per say, but instead compiling a last minute dinner the family can dig into using what you most likely have on hand. Sort of an upgrade to melting a simple quesadilla! Enjoy!
