Well, I wish I had a good reason for this post going up a little later than usual, but the truth is, I don't....other than the fact that I thought today was Wednesday LOL

I have my days all mixed up for some reason.


Tortilla and Black Bean Pie

Tortilla and Black Bean Pie

4 flour tortillas (10 inches)
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 lb ground turkey
1 large onion, diced
Few dashes of Tabasco
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, drained and rinsed
12 ounces beer, or 1 1/2 cups water
1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn
4 green onions, thinly sliced, plus more for garnish
Provolone and Mozzarella
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. With a paring knife, trim tortillas to fit a 9-inch springform pan. Use the bottom of the pan as a guide. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground turkey, onion, tabasco, garlic, and cumin; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and meat is brown, 5 to 7 minutes.
Add beans and beer, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer until liquid has almost evaporated, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in corn and scallions, and remove from heat. Taste and adjust for seasoning.
Fit a trimmed tortilla in bottom of springform pan; layer with 1/4 of the beans, some sliced green onions,

and sliced provolone and mozzarella. Repeat three times, finishing with a few more slices of cheese.
Bake until cheese melts, 20 to 25 minutes.

Remove side of pan; sprinkle pie with green onions. To serve, slice into wedges.

  4. Every time I come to your site, which is on Fridays for your linky party, I enjoy perusing for awhile. Your blog is so beautiful to look at and your photos are awesome. I really like your blog button and would love to paint it. What would you think about that? I may not ever get around to it but when I see a photo that is so perfectly lighted etc., I ask permission to paint it, since photography is art in of itself. If I did paint it, I would be glad to give you a print. If you agree (and if you don't, I completely understand), I would need a copy by email without the writing on it. Thanks for your consideration. No pressure.
