Tortilla pie

I can’t believe the amount of energy my 4 year old has these days. It’s non-stop from morning to evening. Anyone ever questioning if children can’t survive on a plant diet should spend a day at my house with two vegetarian kids, who both grow and develop really well and have tons of energy. When the kids are at sleep (around 7 pm) I’m pooped and ready to do some yoga and then hitting the sack.
I made a special treat for Bella tonight which absolutely loved; tortilla pie. It’s really just tortillas with filling in between layers and then a crea
my sauce on top. It’s a perfect dish to “hide” beans and veggies kids may not favor otherwise. I hide spinach which is not her favorite but was trilled when she asked the filling to be black beans and zucchini.
I really have nothing to complain about so I guess have a nice weekend everyone and life is good:)

3 small corn or flour tortillas
1/2 cup sour cream ( I used tofutti)
1/2 cups cream cheese ( I used tofutti)
1/2 cup salsa
1 tbs taco spice
1/2 cup grated cheese ( I used rice)
1/2 cup black beans
1 cup veggies of your choice, diced ( I used zucchini and spinach)
Heat oven to F400
Mix sour cream, cream cheese , taco spice, salsa and black beans together in a small bowl. Spread 1/3 of the mix on one of the tortillas laying in a baking dish or on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle veggies in an even layer. Place second tortilla on top and spread another layer of cream mix and sprinkle remaining veggies. Place last tortilla and spread cream mix and sprinkle cheese over. Bake for 15 minutes.
