One of my all time favorites from Taco Bell  used to be their Mexican pizzas.  Then I gave up fast food … it’s one dish I haven’t had in well over ten years … it’s still amazingly delicious in my head.  My belly on the other hand would turn over with the suggestion of fast food — without serious consideration!

There are a limited number of fast food places I can now eat without getting immediately ill.  I mean, we’re talking a total of 2 places!  It’s crazy to think of what a huge fast food junkie I was and how it turned completely around.  I’m saving time, I’m saving money … even all these years later :O)  To be quite honest, I don’t remember what those days really were like.  I have memories with friends and family, but nothing that focuses on anything surrounding food.  I do know that at some point in my heaviest of times everything I did was centered around food.  I’m very proud to have changed that.  Now my life is centered around happiness, and quality time with family and friends.  

Ok, enough chatter … onto some delicious cooking and the reason for this rambling.  I found a recipe for Mexi-Pizza online, and have modified it just a bit for me.  There were quite a few extra steps in the pizza prep that were just too much trouble for me.  I simplified it, and it’s close enough to a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza I could eat it every day!

Recipe:

6 Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas
1 lb Lean Ground Turkey 
1 package low salt Taco Seasoning
3/4 C Water 
1 can Fat Free Refried Beans 
Medium to Hot Taco Sauce 
1 Tomato, diced
Mexican blend grated cheese

  1. Brown turkey in a medium skillet, over medium-high heat.  
  2. Prepare the meat with the taco seasoning as it calls for on the package.
  3. Heat up the refried beans, if necessary, add a bit of water to thin it out. 
  4. Broil each tortilla brushed with EVOO on low for 4-6 minutes, until it starts to puff.
  5. Assemble pizzas:  tortilla, add beans and meat, then top with second tortilla.  Top the second tortilla with tomatoes, red sauce and cheese.
  6. Place each pizza on a cooking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

To really make these authentic, cut into four pieces, and …


ENJOY!
