Tex - Mex Torte
We've been making this for years in Texas and I never thought of it as anything worth blogging about.
It seems to be a staple recipe in Texas.
This is a Best of the Best Recipe.
Tex - Mex Torte:
350 degree oven
1- 8" Spring Form Pan
This may appear to be an odd recipe because it's not really a recipe.
I'm writing this from the heart and from memory.
I don't usually use a recipe, it's made at the last minute with whatever we have available in the pantry and refrigerator.
8" Flour Tortillas
Here's a list of the ingredients you can layer in this Torte:
Chicken, cooked ( I use a Vegetarian product)
Ground Beef, sautéed ( I use a Vegetarian product)
Diced Green Chiles in a can, drained,
Sliced Fresh Jalapeños.
Picante Sauce or Salsa ( we all have our favorites in Texas)
1 can of Black Beans, drained
1 can of Corn, drained
Sliced Black Olives
Shredded Cheese, (Monterey Jack or Cheddar)
Create several layers beginning with a Tortilla topped with the meat.
Layer in any order you choose at this point.
Continue to repeat the layering until you end with a Tortilla topped with Cheese.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 40 minutes
Cool, top with a layer of Sour Cream, release from the pan and move to a serving platter.
Slice and serve with additional Sour Cream and Salsa
I hope this makes some sort of sense....
It sure does taste good no matter how you construct it.
You can add or delete any of the ingredients to personalize it for your family.
Peace in the Kitchen!
