Mexican Pizza

We've been in to Mexican food lately so I was searching for some new recipes.  I found a few versions of a Mexican pizza so I pulled some ingredients from here and there and put this recipe together.  I made it the other night and we loved it!

Mexican Pizza


Ingredients: (Makes 4 pizzas)
  • 4 whole wheat tortillas
  • 1  cup of clean salsa or store bought (without added sugar)
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup black beans (reduced sodium)
  • 1 lb lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup mild cheddar cheese 
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 jalapeno (optional)
  • small bowl of Romaine lettuce

Directions:
  1. Preheat over to 400 degrees F.
  2. While the oven is preheating, drain and rinse black beans and cook on stove top.  
  3. Also while the oven is preheating, cook ground beef (or ground turkey).  I did season it with Mrs. Dash Fiesta Lime Seasoning; however, you do not have to season it with anything. 
  4. Once the oven is preheated, place 4 tortillas on the rack for about 3 minutes (just until they become hard).
  5. Remove tortillas and place on a baking sheet. Scoop about 1/2 cup of meat on to each tortilla and sprinkle a little chili pepper on top (if desired).  Then, scoop 1/4 cup of salsa and black beans, followed my a handful of peppers and onions.  Top with 1/4 cup cheese and a couple slices of jalapeno (if desired) before placing it back in the oven for approximately 6-8 minutes (or until cheese is melted).
  6. Remove from oven and top with lettuce before serving!
One serving would be 1 pizza, so, if you don't need to make that many, you could always keep the tortilla soft, spoon all the ingredients on and save it for lunch the next day! 


Enjoy!!
