This is a great casserole dish if you’re looking for an easy weeknight dinner, or a Cinco de Mayo recipe!

What I also love about a good tortilla pie recipe is you can make it your own. Make it in whatever size pan you choose (a pie plate works, too!) Add in rice and beans (for vegetarian), or leave out the olives, add a ton of fresh cilantro, salsa between the layers. Go for it! :)

All you need are these ingredients:

  • Corn tortillas
  • Shredded chicken (I use rotisserie)
  • Chopped green chiles
  • Salsa
  • Sour cream + extra for topping
  • Monterey Jack cheese (or Mexican blend)
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Fresh tomatoes

Tortilla Chicken Pie 

Years ago, when my kids were in high school, this was one of our favorite go-to recipes, quick and easy, when they returned home from soccer practice.

Taco Pie is yummy and goes well served with Homemade Refried Pinto Beans, and these little cookie bites for dessert: Raspberry Lemon Cream Galettes.

Super Easy Tortilla Chicken Pie Recipe

Rotisserie chickens come in handy. You can even freeze the chicken and cheese, to make sure you have the ingredients on hand.

Oh, and this is even better if you can use dark meat (a bit richer), like chicken thigh meat. Or, you could even use ground beef or ground turkey, or shredded pork. Try my 2-ingredients Crock Pot Pork Verde recipe for this casserole dish.

Very simple ingredients, and the topping is always the best part, right?

Sour cream, fresh tomatoes and cilantro, and possibly a few drops of tabasco.

Layer, stack, and serve!

ENJOY!
