Leaning Tower of Tortilla


  • 12 flat hard shell corn tortillas (tostada size)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups Florida mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 Florida carrots, sliced as thin as possible
  • 1 medium Florida zucchini, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat jack cheese (or your favorite), grated
  • 1 cup home made Florida vegetable salsa (or your favorite store-bought)
  • 1/4 cup low fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup scallions, chopped


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large sauté pan. Add onion and sauté, stirring frequently for 3 to 4 minutes. Add all other vegetables and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and season with salt and pepper.
  • Place four tortillas on baking sheet. Evenly distribute spoonfuls of the sautéed vegetables on each tortilla, than add a small amount of the cheese. Repeat so that you have four stacks with three tortillas each. Make sure to save some cheese for the top of the last layer.
  • Bake for 6 to 10 minutes until the stacks are heated thoroughly. Garnish the top of each stack with salsa, sour cream and scallions. Serve warm.
