This isn’t a copy-cat Mexican pizza.  This is MUCH better than what you get at that fast food place.  And, I am pretty sure this one is healthier for you too… especially since the “crust” isn’t fried in oil.  I hope you enjoy this one!

Serves: 6
  • 12 soft-taco shells
  • 8 ounces ground turkey or beef
  • 1 tomato, diced
  • 3-4 green onions, sliced thinly
  • 1 small can sliced black olives, drained
  • 1 jar picante sauce
  • 1 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  1. Brown turkey in non-stick skillet. When no longer pink, drain and add a few spoons of the picante sauce to the meat. Just enough to make it ‘wet’.
  2. In another non-stick skillet, over medium-low heat, begin “frying” the taco shells for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side. (This depends on how crunchy you want your crust.)
  3. To assemble: Place one taco shell crust on the plate, spoon 1-2 Tablespoons of refried beans onto the crust. Smooth to edges.
  4. Top with second crust. Spread 1-2 Tablespoons of picante sauce on top to edges.
  5. Top with ground meat mixture.
  6. Sprinkle with cheese and place under broiler for 2 minutes or until cheese just begins to melt.
  7. Top with onions, olives and tomatoes.
