Meatless Monday - Mexican Pizza








For more info about my Meatless Mondays linkup, go here, or the Meatless Mondays tab at the top of the page. Link up with your own - I love seeing what people are eating!

This week is an easy dish that I like to grab when I'm starving. Mexican seems to work really well for fast food! I usually make a burrito or a quesadilla, but this dish was born from me getting thoroughly sick of both of them and wanting something a little different. You can absolutely use a proper pizza base, or make your own dough, but I just used a tortilla and ate it with a knife and fork, because it tends to go a bit soft. It can also be made for as many people as you want, I won't give measurements :)

Ingredients
1 tortilla per person
refried beans
salsa
sour cream
guacamole
fresh tomato
sliced green onion
coriander/cilantro
any hot sauce you wish - I used Tabasco and the sauce my chipotles came in.

Directions
1. Preheat oven or grill/broiler.

2. Spread refried beans on tortilla and top with salsa. You can also mix the two if you like. Sprinkle cheese over and bake/broil until cheese is golden and tortilla is crisp.

3. Top with sour cream, guacamole, tomato, onion and coriander/cilantro. Sprinkle over hot sauce.

Pretty easy, huh?

Usual spiel:

♥ The linky will be up at 9am every Monday morning, and will stay up until the following Sunday.

♥ Grab the Meatless Monday button and put it in your post, and even on your sidebar if you're feeling generous.

♥ Visit at least one other blogger and leave some love. This is so much more cool if we're in it together!

Check out last week's link for inspiration.

    OMG My kids are totally going to crap their pants when they see me make this for them. My 10 year old and I are anaphylactic to meat and dairy and sooo thought our PIzza days were over. Yayyyy I am forever grateful (and undeniably indebted) to you oh Vegie Mama :) xxx

  6. Never actually met anyone allergic to meat! though I have told people I am before, it stops the incessant questions and bullying :)

    Hi nice - to meet you then. I am your first meat allergy weirdo :) My son and I both developed it earlier this year after we were bitten by ticks. Both of us kept being rushed to hospital because  we couldnt breathe and our faces swelled up - it took them ages to figure it out, but apparently it is quite common in areas where there are heaps of ticks. I dont miss meat but I really miss dairy :( Loving your recipes though xx

  9. This pizza is a great substitute for the usual greasy pizza. Somehow, you'd feel vitalized after eating it, an illusion that you'd get an additional year with each bite.
