This is similar to the Chicken Tortilla Bake I made back on Day 139 of the 365 Days of Baking and that one was pretty good. This one today has a few different ingredients and earned a higher rating from the family. It’s also interesting to see how much prettier today’s pictures are, no to mention the food. LOL!

I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 and this Chicken, Black Bean, and Tortilla Pie earned a unanimous 4 rolling pins from the family. I have to admit I was surprised by their reaction. I hadn’t started eating yet and already they were chiming in with their votes. Either they REALLY liked it or they were famished! LOL! No, I agree with them. It was just that good.
