Tortilla Pizzas

Did you know that your kids are more likely to gain weight during the summer than while they’re in school?

Help your kids maintain a healthy weight this summer by keeping them active and trying some new healthy, kid-friendly recipes. This one provides 1 cup of vegetables per serving!

Ingredients

  • 12 small corn or flour tortillas

  • Vegetable oil

  • 1 (16-ounce) can low-fat refried beans

  • 1/4 cup chopped onion

  • 1 (2-ounce) can diced green chili peppers (optional)

  • 6 tbsp red taco sauce

  • 3 cups chopped vegetables, such as broccoli, mushrooms, spinach, and bell peppers

  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

Brush 1 side of each of 2 tortillas with water. Press the wet sides of the tortillas together to form a thick crust for the pizza. Brush the outside of the tortillas with a small amount of vegetable oil. 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 each pizza with 1 tablespoon taco sauce, then top with 1/2 cup chopped vegetables, 1 teaspoon of diced chili peppers (if desired), and 1 tablespoon of shredded cheese.

Return to frying pan and heat until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
