Mile High Tortilla Pie

Back when My Sister's Kitchen was the new big thing my SIL's and I found a coupon and made a ton of freezer meals. I loved them, and at half price I loved them even more. Having pre-made meals that all you have to do it warm up is sooooo great. I love all the recipes out there that double as a freezer meal. I am trying to build up my freezer meals and this is a great one. This was actually like one of the meals I made at My Sister's Kitchen, but I found this in a Parents magazine ( it doesn't actually say it's a freezer meal but it totally works as one)

This is also one of those great meals that you can totally adapt to your liking which is what I did here. When I made this I had a couple extra boys at my house and they could not stop eating it, it is super kid friendly. Also depending on exactly what you use it isn't bad on the waist band either!

Mile High Tortilla Pie
