To make 12 mini pizzas (6 appetizer servings), you’ll need enough whole wheat flour tortillas to cut out 12 medium circles (approximately 3-4 tortillas), 1 cup of cooked lean ground turkey or beef, ½ cup low-fat refried beans, ½ cup salsa (plus more for garnish), 2 teaspoons taco seasoning and about ½ cup Cabot Lite50 Sharp Cheddar. Optional additions include black olives, shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, and Cabot Light Sour Cream.
Preheat oven to 425°F and coat a 12-count muffin tin with cooking spray. Place tortillas on work surface and, with a cookie cutter and an empty can or glass, cut 3 to 4 medium circles from each tortilla, for a total of 12 circles. Gently press each circle into the muffin tin. Note: The tortilla circle doesn’t have to cover entire side of tin, but should fit snugly.
In a small bowl, combine the meat, refried beans, salsa, and taco seasoning, Divide the mixture evenly among tortilla cups and top each with some cheese and olives, if using. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let cool slightly, then remove from muffin tin with a fork or knife. Serve with a side of salsa and, if desired, lettuce, sour cream, and/or chopped tomatoes.
