Tortilla Pie

This recipe was GREAT! I wish I had taken a picture of it... maybe next time.

Prep: 11 minutes Cook: 25 minutes

1 (16 oz) can refried beans
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
8 (8 inch) flour tortillas
1 cup chunky salsa
2 (4 or 6 ounce) cartons guacamole
1 (8 ounce) package of shredded Mexican Cheese blend

Garnish: sour cream, additional salsa, or guacamole-- we ate ours with some scoops- for added crunch!

Combine first 3 ingredients; stir well.

Place 1 tortilla in a lightly greased 9 inch round cake pan; spread with half of the bean mixture, and top with another tortilla. Spread with half of the salsa, and top with another tortilla. Spread with half of guacamole, and top with another tortilla. Sprinkle with half of shredded cheese, and top with another tortilla.

Repeat layers with remaining ingredients, except cheese. (Pan will be full.) Cover and bake at 350 for 20 minutes; uncover and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered, 3 to 5 more minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.

I think I should have baked it a little longer than the recipe called for- it was still not warm in some areas. I would just leave it covered for a couple more minutes and it should be fine!
