Tortilla Pizzas

Preparation Time: 20 minutes

Number of Servings: 6


  • 12 small corn or flour tortillas
  • Vegetable Oil or Margarine
  • 1 (16oz) 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 (2oz) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro (optional)


Brush one side of each of two tortillas with water. Press the wet sides of the tortillas together to from a thick crust for the pizza. Brush the outside of the tortillas with a small amount of oil or margarine. Evenly brown both sides in a heated frying pan. Repeat with the rest of the tortillas. 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 cup of the bean mixture on each tortilla pizza. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of taco sauce, then top with 1/2 cup of the chopped vegetables, 1 teaspoon of diced chili peppers, and 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese for each pizza. Return to frying pan and heat until cheese melts. Top with cilantro, if desired. Serve immediately.
