Cook Book Challenge: Week 36 by cakecrumbs Cook Book Challenge: Week 36 by cakecrumbs
This week's recipe is a Tortilla Pie from Great Tastes' "30 Minute Meals".

I love the everlasting life out of tortillas and Mexican food/flavours. I'm always using them at home but had never even thought of using them like this. As soon as I saw it, I just had to make it.

Made a few changes in the method, most notably using a springform tin instead of the recommended pie dish. I pretty much never say this, but I actually think mine turned out better looking that the one in the book. I prefer the even look, rather than the domed one suggested in the method. .

Tortillas are, indeed, amazing. But this tempting thing is made even more awesome by the fact that my best friend and I agreeing today that my lack of Mexican food in my life was blasphemous to the delicious stuff, so I'll trust this to be the first recipe of yours that I'll try out! ;) Looking forward to the chance to try out my springform pan, too!

That sounds really awesome and easy. I cook Mexican probably twice a week so I'll try this for sure! :) Probably will skip the taco seasoning mix (those have way too much sodium for me) and just use chilies and fresh cilantro.

Oh agreed, there's nothing quite like making your own seasoning. It's nice being able to control what goes into your food.

For a moment I thought it was a cake that mimicked a tortilla pie :D Because of the avocado wich at first glance looks like kiwi , I suppose.
I admit that I never thought to use the tortillas in this way. Looks so yummy :)

Haha. That would probably just make me sad because I'd want the tortilla instead of the cake!
