Mile High Salsa Pie #SundayFunday

For today's lovely Sunday gathering, Camilla from Culinary Adventures with Camilla said "May is National Salsa Month. Let's salsa! Post your favorite homemade salsa recipe or something that you make with a premade salsa. Be creative!"

This was such a tasty and cozy meal! It's wonderfully spiced - depending on the heat level of the cheese and salsa you use; you can totally play around with those ingredients to make this match your desired "spice" level. It's delicious on its own or pile it even higher after baking with your favorite "taco toppings" - sour cream, diced tomatoes and avocado, shredded lettuce, etc. 

Our sensational salsa recipes!

Mile High Salsa Pie

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium onion, finely diced 
salt and pepper
2 TBS taco seasoning
2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups refried beans
1/2 cup salsa con queso (I used Tostitos
2 cups salsa, divided use
1 1/2 cups shredded Colby jack / pepper jack / Monterrey jack cheese, divided use
10 small corn tortillas (about 4" size)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, cook the ground beef with the onion until tender and cooked through, season lightly with salt and pepper while cooking. Stir to break the meat up occasionally. This should take about 8-10 minutes.
  3. When meat is cooked through and onion is tender, stir in the taco seasoning, minced chipotle peppers, water, refried beans, and salsa con queso. Add a little more water if your mixture is too thick (it should be fairly thick, but you should be able to stir / spread it).
  4. Lay 1 full tortilla, 1 broken into 2 pieces, and then one more half piece to cover the bottom of the baking dish (so 2 1/2 tortillas per layer). Spread 1/4 of the meat mixture, 1/2 cup of the salsa, and 1/4 cup of shredded cheese, repeat these layers 4 times with all remaining shredded cheese across the top layer.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven, uncovered 20-30 minutes, until the cheese is melted throughout and on top. Let rest about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
  6. Serving suggestion: top with sour cream, diced lettuce, tomato, avocado, etc. if desired.
