Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

This post may contain affiliate links. See my full disclosure for further details.

Considering how much I love seven layer dip, I was pretty sure this Seven Layer Tortilla Pie would be amazing! And I was not disappointed.

  The original version of this tortilla pie didn’t include meat. I added some ground beef for my husband, who besides being a carnivore, isn’t a big fan of beans. I prefer the meatless version myself–although it would also be fabulous with shredded chicken. This loaded savory pie is surprisingly filling, with or without meat. So unless you’re feeding 6-8 hungry people, you can plan on leftovers. This is great topped with salsa, sour cream, chopped tomatoes and sliced green onion.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Preparation 20 min Cook Time 40 min Total Time 1 hr


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 package taco seasoning mix
  • 1 can re-fried beans

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef until done; add taco seasoning and cook according to package directions.
