Mexican Tortilla Pie

Today for ground beef Thursday I have a very good, yet very inexpensive and family friendly meal for you.

Over the years I have made quite a few layered tortilla casseroles or Mexican lasagna type meals, but this recipe today is one of my favorites.

I often do not follow an exact recipe when making a layered tortilla casserole, because I just use whatever Mexican type food I have leftover or in the pantry, but for this dish today I use an exact recipe.

And I use a recipe because I find that it turns out better when I do. My family enjoys this recipe more than any of the others that I just throw together with what I have on hand.

What I love about this recipe though is that it is still basic and simple to make. This is a recipe, but it is quick and easy and contains everyday ingredients.

  1. I think this will have to go the menu plan next week!

  2. I am wondering what the 1/1 teaspoon garlic powder means in the ingredient list — should this be 1/4 or 1/2??

    Look forward to your clarification.

  3. I was wondering what to cook tonight . . . now I know. I’m going to try this. Thanks.

  4. This looks great – can’t wait to try it!

  5. Sorry didn’t mean to post twice – Does this freeze well?

  6. Thank you for sharing this! I just made it today and YUM was it good!!! It’ll be repeated here again soon!!

  7. Looks yummy! I am going to put this on the menu for next week!

  8. could you skip the beans?

  9. I came across this looking for freezer meals. It looks delicious, and definitely something my family would enjoy! I think I am going to make the meat mixture and freeze it. Then I would imagine I could thaw it in the fridge over night and then just have the tortillas and cheese on standby. I am just wondering do I need to reheat it in the skillet first, or will the baking time be ok with a cold meat mixture? Thanks!!

    • I think as long as it is thawed it should be fine and will heat up in the oven. You could always add a few minutes to the oven time just to be sure it is heated through if you wanted to.

  10. Well tonight I am having stew but tomorrw night this is
    on the menu. think you could put corn in it also. Thanks
    as always.

    Love this recipe! So good, never woold know gluten free. My husband loved it too!

  13. I added this comment on the oven tacos but figured I should add it here too. 🙂 My family doesn’t like beans so we substitute rice for the beans and salsa for the tomatoes and it is excellent!! When we went on a vacation to Winthrop WA a couple years ago, we got a little cottage with a full kitchen and I assembled this at home and froze it and we took it with us and had a great day of exploring and then a wonderful home cooked meal! Very versatile and yummy!!

  14. Enjoying this tonight with the family. Thank you for the recipe.

  15. I am having a group for dinner tomorrow night. What do you serve with it?
