Chicken Tortilla Pie
We were a bit bored and cooped up this weekend, so we took an impromptu trip to the library. There, Melissa found some cookbooks to peruse. In one, "Cooking Light Fresh Food Fast," she found several recipes to try. Tonight we did just that with the (savory) Chicken Tortilla Pie.
Basically, we made a fresh tomato salsa and piled that, chicken, spicy black bean dip and shredded monterey jack cheese in four layers, each the same. Then we baked it in a spring-form pan and served with sour cream (not pictured). The spicy black bean dip and jalapeno definitely brought the mouth pain, but it was good, especially when subdued by the sour cream. This was an instant hit in our home.
