Mexican Pizza (Vegetarian)

Updated on February 21, 2012

Ingredients

  • 2 cans refried beans
    Be sure to purchase cans labelled "vegetarian" otherwise the beans may contain lard, an unhealthy saturated fat
  • 8 large flour or corn tortillas
    My favorite is Trader Joe's Handmade Flour Tortillas
  • Shredded Mexican blend or Cheddar cheese
  • Taco Seasoning*

How to Make Your Own Taco Seasoning

I recently discovered that it's super easy and less expensive to make your own taco seasoning and you don't have to add the unneeded ingredients used in packaged taco seasoning such as preservatives to keep it fresh and prevent "caking" If you already do a good amount of cooking, you probably have all of the necessary ingredients.

Taco seasoning recipe

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  2. Mix together 2 cans of refried beans and taco seasoning & heat on medium until hot
  3. Place tortilla wraps on cookie sheets & cook in preheated oven for 3-5 minutes (until lightly browned on bottom)
  4. Remove from oven & flip
  5. Top with heated refried beans
  6. Sprinkle with shredded cheese
  7. Heat in oven for 3-5 additional minutes, until cheese is melted
  8. Remove from oven & let cool
  9. Serve with plain Greek yogurt & your favorite salsa
  10. Enjoy!

Mexican Pizza is a great meal for Dipping

Plain Greek yogurt

I have replaced all uses of sour cream with plain Greek yogurt. The taste is very similar and the yogurt has many added health benefits, including high in protein & calcium and low in carbohydrates.

Salsa

Fresh made salsa is always best, but if you don't have the time, or it is not the right season, I'm certain your local grocery store will offer a plentiful variety.
