Friends, just in time for spring and summer, this Tortilla Chicken Pie recipe is delicious with fresh cilantro and lime, a great weeknight option. You can even take these ingredients and add them in an Impossible Taco Pie (using my standard Impossible Pie recipe). So good!

This is a great casserole dish if you’re looking for Cinco de Mayo recipes!

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! :)

Taco Pie is yummy and goes well served with Chunky Guacamole, Mexican Rice Salad, and these little cookie bites for dessert: Raspberry Lemon Cream Galettes.

  1. Can this be assembled the night before and refrigerated until time to cook?

  2. I make something very similar to this however I bake it in a spring form pan and slice it up like pie. Yours looks delish!

  3. Yum! Sounds wonderful!!! The climate change will certainly be an adjustment won’t it? 

  4. Welcome to Bend!

  5. I absolutely LOVE Bend! We used to go on trips to Sunriver every single summer and some of my best childhood memories are made in that area. One day, I hope to move there ourselves. Good luck with the move! And this looks like a great meal!
