What a great mixture! I have made these twice now, once as a main meal and served with rice and my spicy slaw. The other was as an appetizer and cut into smaller pieces. A hit both times and will be making again and again. It's versatile as you can add other things your family enjoys and I used a can of diced jalapenos to kick up the heat factor for our main meal. Made it exactly as is for the appetizers for those who don't care for the spicy.

Great little individual pizzas. Made exactly as directed. Will make again. These would be great party food

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

These are surprisingly filling. I made a double batch and we couldn't finish eating them.

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!
