Mexican Tortilla Pizzas

If I could, I’d eat Mexican 5 nights a week.  I love nachos, mexican pizza, chalupas, quesadillas, etc… Tuesday’s are deemed Taco Tuesday for us, because we go to Taco John’s every Tuesday for dinner. Tacos are just $.89! If you’ve never been to a Taco John’s before, I’d suggest you go. It’s like a Taco Bell, but  they have these potato oles that are to die for and I just love the seasoning on them. They’re really good with nacho cheese.

If you’re trying to cut back on meat these Mexican pizzas are my favorite. I’m not trying to, but if I ever did, I’d eat these pizzas every day a week.  I didn’t have high fiber tortillas or fat free re-fried beans, but I’m going to go to the store and stock up on that stuff. You could serve these with a side of rice.
