It's time to party: Today is National Pi Day! We're celebrating with these perfect pies. Why? Because eating pie is good for the soul.
So scoot into the kitchen and get cooking. From savory to sweet, fruity to meaty, here are Latin inspired pies we love.
In this kid-friendly recipe loaded with veggies, whole-wheat tortillas are smothered with roasted red pepper sauce and stacked with layers of fresh zucchini, sautéed onions and peppers, black beans, and rice. A sprinkling of habanero pepper jack cheese adds a punch of flavor and creaminess.
Oh what's that? You have about 1000 pounds of pernil in your fridge? Turn that pernil into this cute brunch dish: hand pies! You'll only need a handful of ingredients and with the help of store-bought dough, you can have these on the table in just 15 minutes! The cheese is salty, the tomato is fresh, and the pernil is hearty.
This recipe is for a more advanced helper. Here the classic sweet potato pie goes mini in individual tartlets. Have one kiddo measaure and mix while another rolls out prepared pie crust and cuts using a cookie cutter. Then pop it in the oven and once cool, call your helps back to the table to decorate with coconut cream and dulce de leche. The messier, the better.
