I had been craving mexican food, but as we all know it's not healthy. I knew I wanted something cheesy and went on my search for the perfect recipe.

I stopped over at Heather's blog and remembered seeing a Mexican pizza that sounded pretty good.

After looking at the ingredients needed we had everything and were ready to go!

Mexican Pizza

4 whole wheat tortillas
1/2 lb ground beef or turkey ( we used turkey)
1 package of taco seasoning
1 can of enchilada sauce
1 package of low fat cheese ( we used weight watchers low fat mexi mix cheese)
1 Can of low fat refried beans

Toppings ( Salsa, olives, green onion, sour cream..Whatever you choose!)

1) Brown the ground meat in a pan with a little onion, and season salt. Once it's finished cooking drain the fat.

2)Return back to medium low heat and add the package of taco seasoning according to the directions on the back.

3) Spray the tortilla shell with some pam and place under the broiler until light and crispy.

4) Top the shell with beans and taco meat, and then add the second shell on top. Cover the shell with enchilada sauce, top with cheese, olives, etc and place back under the broiler for a minute or two to melt the cheese.

Note: Our tortilla shells were low carb medium size. They ended up being a little too big and we could only eat half. I recommend going the smaller shell route.
