Mexican Pie

This recipe is very similar to my Mexican lasagna, but fewer tortillas, so less carbs! I got the recipe from Mommy Hates Cooking. Since we are moving soon I am trying to not do a ton of grocery shopping. This A super simple recipe, a different twist on something familiar. I made just a few simple changes.

1/2- 1 lb. ground beef (just depends on how much meat you like)
1 packet taco seasoning and the water it requires
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
8 oz. tomato sauce
4 Tbsp. taco sauce
1 cup shredded cheese
3 flour tortillas

Brown ground beef and season with taco seasoning. Combine taco sauce and tomato sauce. Pour a small amount into the bottom of a glass pie dish or an 8x8" casserole dish to evenly coat it. Lay one tortilla on top of the sauce mixture. Pour ground beef on top of tortilla, layer corn on top of beef, and then pour the remaining tomato/taco sauce mix over the top. Cut the remaining two tortillas into 1" wide strips. Lay the strips on top in a lattice pattern. Top with cheese and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes.

The original recipe recommended eating this with tortilla chips, but that is too many carbs for me. I served it some fresh cut veggies and we enjoyed it.
