Taco meat layered on crispy corn tortillas with green chile bean sauce and cheese

Top Review by sbera007

This was awesome! I used two 4 oz cans of whole green chillis(plus some pickled jalepenos for spice in the bean mixture), a 15 oz. can of beans, and tostada shells instead of frying the corn tortillas. This fit perfectly in a 9 in pie plate. This was super easy and delicious. I will make this again for sure. Made for My-3-chefs 2009.
