"I added ground beef to mine and that worked really well. I was hoping the tortillas would crisp a bit more than they did in the oven, so I might try them with crunchy tostadas next time."

"Awesome Pizza! The bean mixture reminds me of the fire bean dip from Don Pablo's. I will definitely be making this many more times! I love this recipe"

"I made these with corn tortillas to lower the fat and folded it like a gordito. Everyone thought they were excellent. I did use fat free refried beans and low fat cheese. Delicious!"

"I used rotissery chicken & omitted the cheese for a healthy variation and it was unbelievably delicious!"

"The Southwest Tortilla Pizzas were great for a quick meal on a busy night or anytime. My husband and I loved them. To lower the fat content, use fat free refried beans instead of the regular kind. I had 10 inch tortillas instead of 6 inch, so after they were cooked, I cut them into wedges to serve. They were great. Also, the Easy Spanish Rice was so easy to make and had a very good flavor. What a super meal!"
