Mexican Tomato Pie

There is nothing like a nice basket of ripe tomatoes to inspire a new recipe. We sometimes use our green tomatoes to make a green tomato pie, but these ripe tomatoes have inspired me to make this Mexican Tomato Pie. I was torn between Italian or Mexican, but I remembered that I just made Italian Scalloped Tomatoes , so today we are having a Mexican dish. We love the way this recipe turned out, we will be making it again and again!
