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!

Mouthwatering Melted Pie Perfection!

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!

    Put some ground beef in there and it’d be even more awesome! #meatymonday 🙂

    • Unknown

      Save the world eat a cow for every cow you eat there’s one less cow to fart:)

    • shelaghc

      I, for one, am glad to see the occasional vegetarian recipe. I’ve been told off numerous times by folks on this board when I’ve suggested such things would be a nice idea.

      Thanks to Collin and Lina for remembering the meatless!

      • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

        Great! Thanks for reading!

      • Olga

        Yes, vegetarian options are so many and yet often overlooked. Great recipe!

    • Just Me

      Lol. My friend was a vegetarian in college so I told her I was gonna go on the meat meat diet. She didn’t laugh but my sister did. Who knew it already had a name- Adkins diet lol

      • Olga

        Which is dangerously unhealthy… if eatting meat, ideally it should not take up most of the meal.

  2. Jen

    What a great idea to have Meatless Mondays.

    • shelaghc

      Meatless Mondays is an idea that’s been around for years.

      http://www.meatlessmonday.com/

      Brava to Collin for jumping on that bandwagon!

      • shelaghc

        And Lina, of course.

      • Olga

        Bravo bravo, even meateaters deserve a break 😉

  3. Jennifer

    Wow, yum! And your right I actually have all of these ingredients. Can’t wait to try, thanks Lina!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Great! You’re welcome!

  4. Becky

    You should switch this for meatless Fridays during Lent 😄

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yes it is timely 🙂

    • Sarah H

      Wholeheartedly agree. It’s sad that so few Catholics realize that we are still required to abstain from meat EVERY Friday or make an alternate sacrifice. During Lent, an alternative sacrifice cannot be made.

  5. Cora

    What can I substitute for the tomatoes? I do not like them. TIA!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Corn and green chilies? More cheese? Black olives? Bell pepper? Salsa?

      • shelaghc

        Pssst! Standard salsa has tomatoes. ;->

        • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

          I know I was thinking some people who don’t like tomato diced, but do like it in purée salsa.

          • BreB

            My kids will not touch a tomato or even anything with canned tomatoes, but they will devour a jar of salsa. It’s so strange.

            • JA

              That’s me too! 🙂

              • Annju

                Same with my kids. They will eat salsa but will not eat tomatoes.

          • Cindy

            That is me too! I will eat them in liquidy salsa, in ketchup, in tomato sauce, but keep me away from the chunks.

            • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

              Ha I knew it! My best friend is the same way 🙂

  6. K

    Thanks for posting a vegetarian recipe! I hope to try this soon.

  7. Mika

    Thanks for the new meatless recepie. I’ve been making your spicy black bean burger and Chipotle rice bowl for meatless Mondays. I’m glad for the new addition.

  8. Robin

    Thanks for the meatless recipes! This one sounds great! I’m excited to see more 🙂

  9. Shalena

    Would this be good with white corn tortilla shells to be gluten free???

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      I think so! You could just later several smaller ones overlapping if they don’t make an 8 inch size. May not look the same but same idea!

  10. Tammy

    Looks yummy!!

  11. StephB

    I always have these items in my pantry 😛 Thank you for the great dinner ideas!

  12. Steph

    Yum! Looks good!! I HATE meat! I have this horror story from when I was a kid(which I will spare you) that turned me off meat FOREVER! Haven’t ate it since! 😷😷 So Meatless Mondays sound GREAT to me😃

    • shopper

      Similar here! except no horror.

  13. cindy

    Yummy! Thank you for posting this recipe. I have all the ingredients and had been wondering what to do to use up my corn tortillas and refried black beans. Now I have it!

  14. Brooke

    I’m so happy for this recipe posting. I’ve been reading hip2save for years now. I’ve been trying to stick to my grocery budget but the cost of meat and eggs makes it tough. I rarely think outside of the box on cooking without meat. We are trying this recipe this week. Thanks Collin!

  15. L-b

    My daughters, ages 5 and 8, each are responsible for cooking dinner one night a week and will be able to cook this recipe. They will love it! Thanks!!!

  16. Tiara

    Garnish with lime & cilantro, maybe some sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, and I’m your gal! I love meatless Mondays!

    When my hubby u used to work late we would not eat meat for dinner.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Yum great ideas

  17. Debbie

    LOVE this! We try to go meatless 3 times a week. I’m super excited to try this. 🙂

  18. Jean

    Lina, last week I made your vegetarian crock pot lasagna. It was great. I was too lazy to saute the vegetables and just put them in raw and chopped–still delicious. Thanks so much. By the way, how do you think corn tortillas would do for this dish??

  19. Monique

    You could also add a meat substitute like Smart Grounds meatless crumbles to this and it would be fabulous. Just warm the “meat” for 4-5 minutes with the taco seasoning mixed in. My VERY picky teen gobbles it up and it’s excellent protein.

  20. daltonjsmom

    I love versatile recipes! At our house, we need recipes that can accommodate meat/no meat, gluten/no gluten, low dairy (and no tree nuts or peanuts) so this looks like I can figure out how to make it work. Thanks for all you do!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh you’re welcome and thanks for reading!

  21. Carol_R

    Thanks for the Vegetarian recipe. As a vegetarian, I appreciate it.

  22. Lynsi

    Thanks so much for the vegetarian recipes. I am a vegetarian and I feel like the recipes I find without meat are few and far between. Keep up the good work!!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Oh thanks Lynsi! This is a great option my family enjoyed 😀 Hope you do too!

  23. Brandi

    Looks yummy! I’m going to make this but with beef and regular & black refried beans instead.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      oh yum!
