Recipe: Tortilla Pie


1 package of tortillas

1 can of salsa

1 lb of hamburger

1 can of kidney beans

1 can of black beans


½ lb of Pepper Jack cheese


-Cook your hamburger

-Toss in your salsa and drained beans and mix it up

-Lay a tortilla (or two) flat along the bottom of a casserole dish (8x11)

-Pile on a layer of meat and bean mixture

Put another layer of tortillas on, then mixture etc. until you’re done

Put dish in an oven at 250 degrees and let cook until hot (about 1 hour).

I actually used 2 smaller casserole dishes and froze one for later. The smaller portions easily feed a family of 5.

Total this cost me $5 to make, so $2.50 per meal or $.50 per family member (for a family of 5).

If you add more beans and cheese, this is great meatless too and even less expensive!
