Tortilla Pie

18 Jan

It’s been a while since I posted again-I’m going to blame it on finals and my current stress level. I only have one final left next week, but of course the hardest one is last. I’ve still been cooking, but the only new recipes I’ve made have been eaten before I could snap a picture. Here is another throwback recipe-tortilla pie. I found the recipe on this for Tumblr and swore I was going to veganize it as soon as possible.


  • 1 package 8″ tortillas
  • 1 16oz can vegetarian refried beans
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 jar salsa
  • 2 avocados, mashed with salt & pepper
  • 8 ounces vegan cheese-I like Galaxy Mexican Shreds


1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9×9 pan. Combine refried beans, cumin, and chili in one bowl. Smash avocados with salt, pepper, and cilantro(if desired) in a second bowl.

2. Lay one tortilla in pan, and top with half of the refried beans. Layer another tortilla on top and spread about 1/2 cup salsa. Top with another tortilla and spread 1/2 of avocado mixture. Top with next tortilla and cheese. Repeat layers-beans, salsa, avocado, cheese. Leave second cheese layer uncovered. Cover with foil and bake for about 20-25 minutes.

3. Cut into wedges and serve with extra guacamole and vegan sour cream.

    I hardly ever eat avocados. This recipe makes me want to run out and get some.

    I want to try this! And I think I might actually do vegan cheese since I’m trying to eat more vegan meals…. why is the vegan cheese here so expensive?!

      Because the price of cruelty is so low…or something like that. The Galaxy cheese isn’t that expensive, it’s only $3.50 here, but Daiya is better. Don’t ever try to eat vegan cheese without melting it though, it’s awful.

    Just made this and really enjoyed it. It’ll make a fabulously easy meal for a lot of company, too, making two of the pies for larger groups.

    Tip: My husband fried the tortillas beforehand, which gave it a lot more structure, and it will probably be less mushy as leftovers. Just be sure to heat the beans beforehand and cook it a bit less so that the tortillas aren’t one torched crisp at the end.
