Cinco De Mayo Taco Cake


  • 5 large burrito sized tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked meat {I like shredded chicken or pork carnitas}
  • 1 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup Mexican rice cooked
  • 1 cup refried beans warmed
  • sliced olives for garnish
  • tortilla strips for garnish
  • sour cream for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add 1/4 cup salsa to the bottom of an 8X8 baking dish. Spread to cover.
  • Pour remaining salsa into bowl of pork and stir to coat.
  • Spread a tortilla with refried beans and place in the baking dish.
  • Top with a scoop of rice, spreading to cover.
  • Next, add a couple spoonfuls of pork then top with a handful of cheese.
  • Repeat these steps four more times.
  • Bake for 10 minutes until cheese is melted and cake is heated through.
  • Top with a sprinkle of sliced olives, tortilla strips, and a drizzle of sour cream if desired.
  • Cut into portions and serve warm.
