Makes 2 pies; hearty vegetarian dish.

  • Yield: 16 servings ( Serving Size: 1/8 pie )


  • 3 can(s) black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 red or yellow pepper diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 16 ounce(s) jarred salsa
  • 1.5 teaspoon(s) chili powder

  • 4 6 inch flour tortillas
  • 2 package(s) Mexican shredded cheese
  • 2 9 inch frozen pie shells
  • salsa and sour cream for garnish


1. Thaw pie shells and bake as directed.

2. Saute peppers and onions in some vegetable oil in a deep skillet.

3. Add beans, salsa, chili powder, and pepper. Simmer for about 20 minutes until thickened.

4. Spoon a thin layer of the bean mixture over the cooked pie shells, followed by cheese and a tortilla. Repeat the layer a 2nd time. On the third layer, end with cheese.

5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, tent with foil to avoid burning the crust. Bake on a baking sheet so that cheese doesn't drip into the oven. You may freeze one of the pies prior to baking it to save for later.
