Mini Mexican Pizzas

recipe from Dashing Dish

originally made for our cooking party

3-4 large whole wheat tortillas
(enough to cut out 12 small circles)
1 cup cooked ground turkey or cooked ground beef
(I used ground beef)
1 cup salsa of choice (I used a corn and bean salsa)
2 tsp dry taco seasoning
1/2 cup low fat refried beans
1/2 cup shredded Mexican or Chedder cheese
Optional Toppings: sour cream, lettuce, black olives, tomatoes

Preheat oven to 425 degrees
Spray a 12 count muffin tin with non stick cooking spray

Start by laying out individual tortillas on flat surface.
Cut 3-4 circles out of each shell, using a glass, can or cookie cutter
Press each circle into the tins. (it doesn't need to be perfect)
In a bowl, stir together meat, taco seasoning, refried beans, and salsa
scoop approx 1/8 cup of mixture into each shell
top with shredded cheese

bake 12-15 minutes or until cheese is melted

*approx 3-4 per person

*these freeze well

I used my hamburger pattie maker.
I was able to get 3 circles from each shell
