Day 21: A Recipe

Vegetarian Tortilla Pie (from Good Housekeeping)

I make this recipe at least twice a month. It is SOOOOOO good and so super simple. And healthy to boot! :)

4 10" flour tortillas
1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
1 (12 oz) jar medium salsa
1 can no-salt corn, drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
6 oz. reduced fat Mexican blend cheese (cheddar or Monterey can be used too)

1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves (I used 1/8 cup dried cilantro)

Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray the bottom of a 15x10 1/2" jelly roll pan with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine tomato sauce and salsa. In medium bowl, combine corn, black beans and cilantro.

Place one tortilla in the bottom of the jelly roll pan. Top with 1/3 of the salsa mixture, then 1/3 of the black bean/corn mixture then 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat layers twice, ending with the last tortilla.

Place in oven and heat for 10-12 minutes.

I agree with Kerry except my problem is that the husband wouldn't eat it... no meat.
