Despite my lacking photography capabilities (still camera-less and using laptop), I am back for the March You Want Pies With That. This month the pie was supposed to celebrate herbs and spices.
My natural inclination would be to go with cinnamon or nutmeg or anything normally associated with a sweet delectable pie (snickerdoodle pie immediately came to mind). BUT, and it’s a big one, I gave up most sweets for Lent. I am far too weak to make a succulent sweet pie and not even taste it.
So, I decided to showcase the spices I probably use more than any others: Cumin and chili powder (chipotle in this case). I don’t know if they are my favorite but I use them over and over and over. I also threw in some cilantro which I love and usually have around.
Clearly, we have deviated from sweet. There is no real recipe. The crust is made of flour tortillas. The filling is black beans, onion, garlic, red pepper, cumin, chipotle chili powder, oregano, salt and tomatoes. Saute all that and then top it with some cilantro and a mexican cheese mix. Pop it in at 350 for about 20 minutes. Voila! Tortilla pie!
