This is a simple, and filling, meal that allows you to feed your family of 5 - 6 with only 3 burrito sized tortillas. Cook's Note: This can be made with leftover taco meat and homemade refried beans. You can also add other ingredients to the layers--drained Mexican Corn, Spanish rice, etc. to change the flavor of your Burrito Pie. The total cost of the recipe is $6.26 without additional toppings, or about $1.05 per serving.
