Mom's Enchilada Pie

12

This is one of my mom's creations that I have updated over the years. I've added black beans and Kalamata olives to the filling as well as smoked paprika. When my mom used to make this, she would build the casserole in a tall round baking dish. In this way she could layer one tortilla on top of another. She would cut it into wedges, much like a layer cake. I like to build mine in an oblong baking dish, like a lasagna.
