SAVE THIS CHICKEN, BLACK BEAN AND TORTILLA PIE TO YOUR FAVORITE PINTEREST BOARD!
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!

- 4 tortillas (10-inch)
- 1 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 large onion, minced
- 1 jalapeno chile, cored, seeded and diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin
- salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 15 oz. cans black beans, dried and rinsed
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 10 oz. package frozen corn
- 1-1 1/2 cups shredded, cooked, seasoned chicken breast
- 4 plum tomatoes, diced
- 4 scallions, thinly sliced for garnish
- 3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, and heat the canola oil.
- Add the onion, garlic, and jalapeno, and cumin. Add salt and pepper to season.
Cook until onion is soft and translucent, about 5-7 minutes. Add beans and water. Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to medium and simmer until the water has practically evaporated about 8-10 minutes.
Add the corn, chicken, and tomatoes and scallions. Mix to combine and remove from heat. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
With a paring knife, trim tortillas to fit a 9-inch springform pan using the bottom of the pan as a guide.
Put springform pan back together and spray with cooking spray. Place one tortilla in the bottom of the pan.
Spread 1/4 of the bean mixture and cover with 3/4 cup of shredded cheese. Repeat process three times.
Cover the top layer of beans with 1 cup of shredded cheese.
- Bake for 20-25 minutes until warm throughout and cheese is melted.
Sprinkle with scallions and remove from pan, leaving the bottom intact. Cut into wedges and serve.
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.
And now for the…
It is from our wonderful friends at resource Natural Spring Water.
resource Natural Spring Water is 100% sustainably sourced spring water.
It contains natural electrolytes for a uniquely crisp taste.The bottles are made from 50% recycled plastic (excluding the cap and label)
resource Natural Spring Water, it’s more than hydration, it’s Electrolytenment.
Yes, you can drink water out of the tap, buy a filter for your faucet or buy the pitchers with the filters in them, but they aren’t going to give you the same results as drinking water with natural electrolytes. I drank the water after my run one day and I have to say that my recovery was quicker and I just felt better. Who doesn’t want to feel that way after a workout?
My son and daughter are also runners, so I want to give them what I can to help them perform at their peak, especially when they’re racing. This water is from the makers of Nestle Waters, North America, Inc. and is available at your local grocery store or convenience stores throughout the United States.
