Simple Corn and Bean Tortilla Pies

Total Time
Prep 10 mins

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!

We really enjoyed these. I used chili beans that have some seasoning in them. I also used frozen corn which I defrosted first. I don't have jumbo muffin pans so I cut the corn tortillas using a very large glass as a template. Worked perfectly. My tortillas did crack a little when putting them in the muffin tins but they still held the filling together. I got 12 pies from this and had a little of the bean/corn mixture left over. I am going to try freezing a couple to see how they freeze and reheat. Thanks for a great recipe!

We had this for dinner last evening and my middle son enjoyed polishing off what was left. We topped these with a choice of three different salsas and it was very good. I did have a struggle with my corn tortillas tearing, even after heating so I switched out to my flour tortillas. They worked better, but still tore a time or two. I will try this again, maybe my tortillas weren't the freshest in town. Anyways, this was really good and could lend itself to many more flavors, kinda a whatever floats your boat kind of mini quiche when you use muffin tins, which I had to use. We will repeat this in the future I'm sure! Thanks so much! ZWT 3-Summer '07
