Peach Salsa Tortilla Pie

It’s not my birthday yet…


But pass me the sombrero!

I brought my sweet and salty tooth beyond just breakfast and dessert this week.  Fruit in salsa is one of the best combos.  Tomatoes are technically a fruit.  Strangely enough, they are legally a vegetable.

If you haven’t tried fruity salsa, I especially recommend experimenting with mango, strawberry, and pineapple.  It’s easy enough to make yourself (make salsa, add fruit), but I fell victim once again to Whole Paycheck Foods.  Sunday I trotted home with a jar of the good stuff and an idea for the fresh corn tortillas I bought at the farmer’s market.

Originally these were going to be enchiladas, but I broke the tortillas.  Instead, I decided to layer the pieces and call it pie!  Pie always wins.

The tortillas I used were small (~8-inch) corn tortillas made fresh at the farmer’s market.  This mean they were gluten-free, for those that care.  You can use anything you like; sprouted tortillas would be great in this too!

The strangest part to some of you may not be the fruity salsa, but the cod.  If you think that’s too weird (it really is good!), you could add any protein here.  Try chicken, shrimp, ground beef… or even tempeh to make it vegan!


Peach Salsa Tortilla Pie

Peach Salsa Tortilla Pie

  • 2 pieces of cod (~12 ounces)
  • Juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1/2 C peach salsa
  • 2 green onions, diced
  • 1 C kale, chopped
  • 1/2 C mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 C red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, diced (optional – I love heat)
  • Avocado, to top


Preheat oven to 375.  Place cod on a pan, top with lemon juice, and cook until barely done (~7-8 mis).  Remove from oven and allow to cool before breaking into smaller pieces.

Place 2 tortillas in the bottom of a pyrex (I lined mine with foil for easier clean up).  Layer with 1/4 C salsa, 1 onion, 1/2 C kale, 1/4 C mushrooms, 1/4 C bell pepper, and 1/2 the jalapeño (if using).  Repeat layer, and top with remaining tortillas (2).  Top with additional salsa.

Cover and bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes, then remove cover and bake an additional 5-10 mins to crisp the top.  You could also top with cheese here.  Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly to solidify.  Cut into wedges, top with avocado slices, and enjoy!

Makes 6 servings.

With all these peach recipes, I’m going to have to quit getting annoyed by the Georgia Peach nickname.

Have you ever had a fruit-laced salsa?  What is your favorite fruit to add?

What kind of tortillas do you prefer? I love the weight that corn tortillas have.

      My mom used to do salmon with mango salsa – so good!

  3. Arman @ thebigmansworld

    Oh my…I’d go Vegan to eat that!!! The only time I had a fruity salsa was at a sample from Wholefoods- I think it had strawberries in it

    1. Laura

      Errrr… you know cod isn’t vegan, right?

  7. Sam @ Better With Sprinkles

    I don’t go for fruit salsa often, but I’m a big fan of mango salsa! Especially when it has some heat to it.

  8. Heather (Where's the Beach)

    I love making either a peach or pineapple salsa. I love how the sweet can balance out the heat.

    1. Laura

      I LOVE pineapple habanero popsicles. Totally not what we were talking about, but still…

  9. Tina Muir

    oooooh this sounds SO GOOD, especially the farmers market tortillas. I’ll swap the cod for beans – REALLY want to make this today!!

    1. Laura

      Let me know if you do!!! It would be perfect with beans. We have some awesome Mexican markets here – all sorts of homemade deliciousness.

  15. PavementRunner

    This definitely qualifies as strange… but LOOKS SO FRIGGIN YUMMY. Ugh. I’m so lazy, can you make this for me? I’ll go on a run with you as form of payment. Deal?

    1. Laura

      Haha – sold!

  16. Heather @ better with veggies

    MMMMM….I have a avocado salsa (really fancy guac) covered cod sitting in my FitMark lunch bag right now. :)

  18. Linz @ Itz Linz

    there’s a mexican place here that has a mango salsa so i bet your peach salsa is really good!

    1. Laura

      Love mango salsa! Have you had pineapple? They sell that made in-house at Whole Foods here.

  19. Meghan@CleanEatsFastFeets

    Again with the peaches, knowing I still have weeks before I can get a decent peach around these here parts. Yes, I just said these here parts. I think I might need a nap or to eat or something, anything so long as I stop saying these here parts. Shit, there I go again.

    1. Laura

      Have you been in the peach hooch again? ;)
