Burrito Pie

This Mexican inspired recipe has been a favorite in our household for a number of years. Recently, we haven't made it as often due to the number of servings but that may change. After the most recent bake, we decided to freeze the second pie and thaw it after a month. This worked beautifully and the frozen was as tasty as the fresh made one.

As stated, this recipe makes 16 servings (2 8" pies that get cut into 8 pieces each.) If you don't want to be eating leftovers for a week, you can package and freeze one of the pies. It can then be reheated by placing it in a baking dish, covering it with aluminum foil, and baking it at 375 degrees for about 1 hour. Yeah, I know. It takes longer to thaw than to cook it fresh, but hey.
