Simple Corn and Bean Tortilla Pies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Mandy

I love anything Mexican and whilst this is not traditional Mexican fare it has a Mexican aura about it. Found in a recipe magazine I bought a while back, it was a hit with the whole family and like all my recipes easy to prepare! I used corn tortillas but any will work fine. The recipe says to use pie dishes but I made these in jumbo muffin pans, there was just a little extra tortilla poking out the top.

Easy and fun - it is very quiche like. I couldn't find Mexican chili beans, so I used kidney beans seasoned with chili powder, cumin, and cayenne pepper. Thanks for sharing!
