Green Tomato & Chorizo Pie

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Its loose again

I garden. At the end of the season I had lots of green tomatoes whose blossom end had not blushed, thus they would never ripen. I devised several recipes this year and will try to develop more this season.

Fair attempt to use green tomatos. Rather bitter tho, and salt from chorizo and cheese can really add up. Sour cream as a topping helps a bit.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400F degrees.
  2. Put tomato slices in a heavy pot, cover, and cook over medium-low heat until soft, 20-30 minutes.
  3. While tomatoes are cooking, remove chorizo from casings, crumble, and fry in a large fry pan in 1 tablespoon of olive oil until browned.
  4. In another fry or sauté pan, cook mushrooms and onions in 2 remaining tablespoons of olive oil over moderate heat until the liquid has cooked out of the mushrooms.
  5. When the tomatoes are soft, stir in 2 tablespoons of flour, then stir in the mushroom/onion mixture.
  6. Stir in more flour if too wet.
  7. Prebake the pie shell for 6 minutes.
  8. Remove the shell from the oven and spoon 1/2 of the sausage onto the crust.
  9. Spoon 1/2 of the tomato mixture over the sausage; repeat with remaining sausage and tomatoes.
  10. Top with cheese and bake 20-30 minutes, until crust is browned to your taste.
