Tostada Tartlettes {mini pies}

Does anybody know the difference between pies and tartlettes? I could have looked it up, but ignorance is BLISS!

Taco pie simply does NOT sound near as tantalizing as tostada tartlettes. What do you think?

I forgot about these tempting little treats until a wedding reception this weekend. How yummy and fun to make. Aside from the fact of how cute they are, they are super dee duper easy.


Pie dough tartlettes made or store bought {I used Trader Joe's pie dough and cookie cutters and a tart tray}

Refried black beans...{I whip mine}

Finely shredded Romaine lettuce, and I do mean as fine as prissy looking

Shredded Tillamook Cheddar Cheese

Trader Joe's Corn and Chile Salsa {Goodness Gracious! Don't skimp on this}


Place beans in bottom of prepared and ready-to-eat tartlettes.

Layer the rest of the ingredients into "pie shell"

Serve at room temp. Be kind and share.

Happy Happy Wednesday!
