Tostada Tartlettes {mini savory 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...and as much as we are all loving Russian tea cakes and shrimp cocktails...these fun little appies are a welcome change for your next Christmas party!


Pie dough tartlettes made or store bought {I used Trader Joe's pie dough, 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}


1. Place beans in bottom of prepared and ready-to-eat tartlettes. {A pastry bag is FUN to use!}

2. Layer the rest of the ingredients into "pie shell"

3. Serve at room kind and share.
