My family loves this pie, gb! I used corn tortillas because that was what I had. And I also splashed a bit of taco sauce in the layers, too. My husband loved it so much, he had two huge servings, and swiped the rest for lunch the next day! We had chopped tomatoes and plain yogurt(which I prefer to sour cream) on the top, and it was delicious! Yellow rice on the side was perfect, as was the fresh canteloupe! It was refreshing served with the pie, and a nice change of pace. Thanks!

I thought my DH was going to make himself sick eating this recipe. It was that good. He loves trying my new recipes and gives me his opinion on them. This one is one that he will want often. I did scale the recipe down to serve 2 and used even less meat than the scaled version called for. We are not great big meat eaters. I also didn't have the taco cheese blend, so I used a American/Cheddar blend. I am sure it will be even better next time when I have the correct blend of cheese. Thanks for this quick and easy recipe.
