Quick and Delicious Mexican Tortilla Pizzas

Serves 2.

Ingredients:

  • 2 tortillas, burrito sized
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red pepper, sliced in strips
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 1 avocado, pitted and chopped into small pieces
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (use more or less to taste, I like my cheese!)
  • 1 cup of your favorite salsa
  • taco seasoning
  • 1 lb. ground turkey or chicken
  • 1 can rotel tomatoes

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425.
  2. Cook ground meat with oil. Drain can of rotel tomatoes and add to meat. Cook over medium heat,  adding taco seasoning to taste.
  3. In the meantime, dice your onion and pepper. Add them to the cooking meat, cooking until softened. Adding more taco seasoning to taste. I add chili powder to give it a little kick as well.
  4. While the veggies are cooking, chop up your avocado and tomato.
  5. Also heat up the tortillas on an oiled skillet over medium heat, about 2 minutes on each side. This step is optional but it creates a nice and crispy tortilla for the crust!
  6. When the meat/veggies are done cooking, begin assembling your pizzas. First, spread 1/2 cup of salsa on each tortilla. Then add the meat, onions and peppers. Sprinkle the cheese on top. Then add avocado and tomatoes.
  7. Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the tortillas are crispy.
  8. Top with sauce of choice. I like to top it off with some hot sauce.
  9. Let them cool for a couple of minutes and enjoy!
