Today is the start of me being a stay-at-home mom again.  I have been looking forward to this for so long!  The last few months have been so crazy busy, and I’m looking forward to being able to take a breath and focus on different things now.

But the thing that I have found is that now, even though I just left my job, I can already tell my life is going to be filled with different things!  A different kind of busy, but still busy.  Which is why you will still be getting easy, fast recipes from me most days here.  But really, that’s my style anyway – as much as I love being in the kitchen, I can’t imagine spending hours in there every day!!

This is a great idea for a weeknight meal.  Or it would be wonderful for a brunch.  It does take a bit of time to bake, but the hands on time is very minimal and you can get other things done while it is in the oven.  And I’m actually wondering if this would freeze well.  I really need to get a large freezer one of these days so I can start testing what recipes freeze well!  I loved the idea of using the tortilla for the crust on this – so easy – especially if you are afraid of crusts!!

Green Chile Tortilla Pie
adapted from Not Your Mothers Weeknight Cooking

serves 4

Total time:  60 minutes

1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil
one 10-inch tortilla
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 4-ounce can roasted chopped green chiles, drained
3 large eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
pinch of salt
pinch of ground cumin

Preheat the oven to 350F.

Grease a 9-inch pie plate with the oil.  Place the tortilla in the bottom and press it down so it sticks to the bottom and the sides.  Sprinkle two-thirds of the cheeses on the bottom of the tortilla.  Sprinkle the chiles over the cheese.

Beat together the eggs, sour cream, salt and cumin.  Pour over the green chiles and cheese.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.

Bake in the center of the oven for 40 minutes or until set.

Let cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

    Congrats on your new SAHM status! I'm sure your hands will be just as tied, if not more, with the little ones. This chile tortilla pie looks delicious, Deborah. Thanks for the excellent dinner idea!

    That's great that you're a SAHM again! I know you're starting to freeze more meals now and was wondering if you have heard of "30 Day Gourmet" freezer cooking book. I've been making freezer meals for a couple of years now, but just made my first entire months worth of meals (with help from my wonderful mother-in-law)to have after the birth of our daughter. The meals have been very good and the website has many more recipes. Just thought you might be interested in something like that and maybe even use it for a cookbook of the month!
