One Pot Chicken Tortilla Pie has layer after layer of flour tortillas with all kinds of goodness sandwiched in between and tons of melted cheese on top. The whole thing is cooked in a cast iron pan for a very easy meal with little kitchen cleanup.
There are two layers of refried bean and enchilada sauce mixture and two layers of a creamy chicken mixture with cheese, green chilies, and corn.
If you let it sit and cool for a little while, you can slice it into pie-shaped pieces that hold together wonderfully.
I made One Pot Chicken Tortilla Pie in a 12-inch cast iron pan with 12-inch tortillas. When layering the tortillas in the pan, it quickly became obvious they were not all exactly 12-inches. They actually varied in size quite a bit. Oh well.
You could use smaller tortillas and overlap them some. That might actually look better.
Anything with the word “pie” in the name gets me excited. Savory pies, sweet pies. Love them all. A slice of this Chicken Tortilla Pie makes a hearty and delicious dinner and makes enough servings to serve 8 people.
