Martha's Tortilla Pie

Okay--so this dish looks a little creepy, but it is really yummy. Me & A both thought it did need a little more heat to it so next time we will be adding 1 tsp of cayenne to it. I got this recipe from Martha Stewart. Try it--it's so good!

4 flour tortillas (10-inch)
1 tablespoon olive oil , plus more for pan
1 med. onion , chopped
1 1/2 tsps. ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
Salt & Pepper
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 pound ground beef sirloin
3 garlic cloves , minced
1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
3 packed cups loose baby spinach (about 5 ounces) , torn into pieces
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 9 inch springform pan

1. Prep: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Trim tortillas to the size of the springform pan by placing the bottom of the pan over the tortillas and cutting the edges of tortillas off. Oil the pan and set aside.
2. Put oil in pan til warm--add onion, cumin, and red pepper flakes. Salt and pepper to taste.
3. Cook until onion is tender.
4. Stir in tomato paste--raise temp to high and add beef and garlic--cook until meat is brown
5. Add corn and spinach. Keep stirring until spinach is wilted.
6. Put tortilla in the the bottom of the pan. Spread a 1 1/2 cups of beef mixture and 1/2 cup of cheese.
7. Repeat for two more layers.
8.On last tortilla put the remaining of the mixture and another 1/2 cup of cheese.
9. Bake tortilla pie for 15-20 minutes--then enjoy!
