Since Friday I have REALLY been craving a Mexican pizza from Taco Bell.
So when I got home from Zumba, I opened up the fridge and saw the leftover refried beans (that I made FROM SCRATCH with dried pinto beans), the fresh salsa, and the half a block of raw cheese that didn't get used in Saturday's enchiladas.
I pulled out four corn tortillas (4-inch), baked them for 5 minutes to get them crispy, layered refried beans on one and salsa on the other, stacked them, shredded some cheese over the top...and voila! My two Mexican pizzas.
Even more delicious...and instead of 940 calories, 50 g fat, and a boatload of sodium, I got my Taco Bell fix for 555 calories and 30 g fat. Which, considering my fruit smoothie breakfast, salad and tabouli lunch, and greek yogurt snack -- puts me right at my nutritional goals for the day!!
THE TACO BELL CRAVING HAS BEEN SATISFIED!!
