The husband and I love Mexican food. I used to make a variation of this recipe all the time when we were first married. I used refried beans then and we now prefer black beans, and just like my enchilada casserole recipe (check it out if you want a great enchilada recipe) I used chicken in this one too. This is a pretty versatile recipe and you can really use whatever ingredients your family likes.
Preheat oven to 350ºF.
Saute green peppers and onion until just tender and they have gotten a little browned. Remove from heat. Combine beans, chicken, sauted green peppers/onions, red pepper flakes, chili powder, garlic powder and 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese in a bowl. Stir to combine all the ingredients.
In a hot nonstick skillet, lightly crisp the tortillas on each side. This will keep the pie “crust” remaining firm when you add the filling and bake. Spray a pie plate with cooking spray and place one of the tortillas in the bottom. Divide the bean/chicken mixture evenly and place half of it on the first tortilla. Place the second tortilla on top of this mixture and top with the other half of the bean/chicken mixture. Place the last tortilla on the top. Take the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and evenly spread it over the tortilla.
Bake for approximately 20 minutes. Top with your favorite salsa or sour cream. Serves 6.
My kids really like this recipe because they say It taste just like pizza. Besides getting rave reviews at home, this was another popular side we used to have on the TaylorMade Menu in the cafe. This is a lovely way to use stale bread or when you have fresh farmers market tomatoes. You can use any kind you like; I have made this recipe with all kinds—red, yellow and orange tomatoes, grape tomatoes, heirloom tomatoes, etc.
