Layered Breakfast Tortilla Pie – Stacked layers of tortillas filled with seasoned eggs, cheese, and tomatoes.

Layered Breakfast Tortilla Pie | | Stacked layers of tortillas filled with seasoned eggs, cheese, and tomatoes | #recipe #breakfast #cincodemayo

As I was sorting through my few Mexican inspired dishes on zee bloggy, I noticed that, a.) there’s no Margaritas! (WHaaaaaaT?!?) and b.) my awesome Layered Breakfast Tortilla Pie was nowhere to be found!

How could I have missed posting my favorite Margarita recipe!? Argh! I will get around to it, you just wait. First, I need to share this awesome breakfast dish because it is incredibly delicious, and you can be all festive and serve it for breakfast this Sunday!

If this breakfast item is not your forte, I am going to give you a few other options that you can get down with on Cinco de Mayo.

Cinco de Mayo Recipes | | #recipes #cincodemayo

Top Two:

Avocado Feta Salsa

Chicken Enchiladas

Bottom Two:

Fish Tacos with Creamy Lime Mustard Sauce

Ice Cream Chimichangas


That is all sorts of deliciousness, right?!

By the wayz, while you are partying it up with that tequila and tortilla, I will be stuffing my face with Mom’s delicious lamb casserole and these Croissants with Sesame Seeds and Feta. I just made a batch and they are aaaaamazing! We are celebrating Easter this weekend! No, I’m not losing it… it really is Easter… Orthodox Easter. We celebrate a bit later than everyone else. Not always, though. Sometimes it falls on the same day as yours.

Anywho! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend watching those horses race while chugging down a few pitchers of Margaritas and Mint Juleps!

To those celebrating Easter, Christ is Risen! Христос Воскресе!

    Such a great idea using the tortilla in a pie. Happy Easter! I’m not orthodox but a believer! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Looks good! Where there are tortillas and eggs and cheeses there can be no wrong.
    What’s the purpose of having two tortillas per layer? Just curious:)

      Hi, sweetheart!!!

      When I tried it with one tortilla, the whole stack just fell… not enough weight support for the eggs. It worked once I doubled it up!

    This looks very yummy. Too bad I’ve already started waffle batter. Ah well, we’ll continue the Cinco celebration into Cuarenta or something.

    Happy Easter!

  12. No margaritas! *eep* Oh well, this tortilla pie will more than make up for any lack of tequila. I’ll have two slices, please! (And make ’em big!) ๐Ÿ˜€

      Happy Easter, sweetheart!!! Hristos Voskrese! Za mnogu godini!
      I’m about to stuff my face!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  17. Yummy breakfast dish. I’ve been putting off making a couple of similarly themed brunch recipes for a while now but this weekend is probably a good time to trot them out.

    I took a quick peek at the other dishes, especially the fish tacos, as I’ve been wanting to make some of those as well.

    Funny that I haven’t seen any tamale recipes posted in a while now. I made some a while back and really wanted to squee together about their general tastiness.
