Tortilla Pizzas

Last updated: November 29, 2017

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

  • 12 small corn or whole wheat flour tortillas
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 (16-ounce) can refried beans
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 ounces fresh or canned green chili peppers, diced
  • 6 Tbsp. red taco sauce
  • 3 cups chopped vegetables, such as broccoli, mushrooms, spinach and bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Brush one side of two tortillas with water. Press the wet sides of the tortillas together to form a thick crust for the pizza. Brush the outside of the tortillas with a small amount of vegetable oil. Evenly brown both sides in a heated frying pan. Repeat with rest of the tortillas and set aside. Heat refried beans, chopped onion and half of the diced chili peppers together in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Spread about 1/3 of the bean mixture on each tortilla pizza. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp. of taco sauce, then top with 1/2 cup of the chopped vegetables, 1 tsp. of diced chili peppers and 1 Tbsp. of shredded cheese for each pizza. Return to frying pan and heat until cheese melts. Top with cilantro and serve immediately.
