Quesadilla Pie

As far as Miles and I are concerned, Mexican food always satisfies. Case in point. Last night, on his way home, Miles called me. I was on the phone with my friend Kim, and I didn't click over. She was in the middle of story, and I thought it would be rude to interrupt her. Then Miles called again, and I still didn't click over. It just wasn't the right time in the conversation. Needless to say, when I finally called him back, Miles was a little short with me. However, when he got home and saw all my Mexican fixings sprawled out on the counter, his mood immediately changed.

Miles: "Ohhh...(rubs palms together in anticipation) ...tacos?!!"
Me: "Close. Are you hungry?"
Miles: "Um...yeah!"

Our night turned happy, and all because of this quick, easy, and downright delicious little recipe. Turn your evening around, and make my quesadilla pie tonight!

Quesadilla Pie
You can really use any fillings you like, or have on hand. This would also be a great place to use leftovers. Adapt, and be merry! *You can find the inspiration for this recipe over at Simply Recipes .

You will need:
1 green bell pepper
4 scallions
2 medium tomatoes
1 medium yellow summer squash
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili power
4 10 inch tortillas 
1 table spoon softened butter
1 can diced jalapeno peppers
1 can black beans
1 cup diced, cooked chicken
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used sharp cheddar)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and then begin by dicing your veggies. Peppers,


and tomatoes. Squeeze out your seeds before dicing.

Grate the squash on a box grater.

Mix in the spices with the squash to give it some Mexican flare.

Time to assemble. Butter one side of one flour tortilla. Place this face down in your pie plate.

Once the tortilla is nestled in the plate, place 1/3 of the toppings in this layer. Add some hot sauce, if your please. Make sure your cheese goes on top of the other toppings. This is your glue.

Cover with next tortilla, and repeat for two additional layers. Top with a buttered tortilla.

Cover with foil, and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover, and bake for an additional ten minutes, this should crisp the top.

Garnish with sour cream, peppers, or salsa. Time to eat!
