CORECAMPER MINI MEXICAN PIZZAS

3-4 large whole wheat tortillas, or enough to cut out 12 small circles (I prefer LaTortilla brand)

1 cup lean ground turkey

1/2 cup salsa of choice

2 tsp dry taco seasoning

1/2 cup low-fat refried beans

1/2 cup low-fat shredded mexican blend or 2% cheddar cheese

Optional toppings: sliced black olives, shredded lettuce, low fat sour cream, chopped tomatoes

Preparation

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

Start by laying each tortilla out individually on a flat surface, and use an empty can, glass cup, or cookie cutter to cut 3-4 medium circles out of each wrap.

Press each wrap circle into muffin tin using your fingers. (Note: it doesn’t have to cover the entire side of the tin, it should just fit snuggly!)

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the ground meat, salsa, taco seasoning, and refried beans. Stir until well combined.

Scoop 1/8th cup of meat mixture into each wrap

Top with shredded cheese, (dividing evenly between each pizza), and olives if desired.

Bake in pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted.

Wait for mini Mexican pizzas to cool, and remove from muffin tin using a fork or knife. Pizza’s should pop out with ease!

Serve with a side of salsa, low fat sour cream, chopped tomatoes, and/or shredded lettuce if desired!
