This Green Chile Tortilla Pie is crowd pleasing and super easy and a little unconventional by using a tortilla as the crust.



  • 1 tablespoon 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 350ºF.

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.
