Jenny Jones Tortilla Pie is Worth a Try!

I collect recipes all the time thinking I am actually going to make them!  Most of the recipes I have not gotten to make yet, but that is not a surprise to anyone who saves recipes.

I don’t remember how long ago or on what show I saw Jenny Jones make this Tortilla Pie, but looking for a change, I decided to try the recipe which is quite easy, very good and healthy for me!   I am not a vegetarian but I am trying to add more vegetarian recipes to my repertoire! Slowly I am getting there!

Jenny’s Tortilla Pie is very easy to make with ingredients even I have on hand!  Every time I make the recipe, I say I need to go buy a new casserole dish to make this in, but I never seen to remember so I use a springform pan instead and it works just as well.  Sometimes even if the recipe calls for just half a cup of each of the peppers and I don’t want wrap them up and put them back in the refrigerator, I will use the whole pepper and it does not make a difference , just a bit messier and more to add when putting it together!

So give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!  If you have any good vegetarian recipes that you would like to share with us, send them our way as well!
