Zesty red-chile seasoned chicken taco meat layered on a crispy, oven baked whole-grain tortilla with refried beans and shredded Mexican cheese blend – topped with fresh pickled veggie salad.
Ingredient Quantity Method
10 each 
Refried beans, fat-free 12-1/2 oz 

Chicken Taco Meat (#19957-328)

25 oz 
Shredded Mexican cheese blend, reduced fat 2-1/2 oz 
Pickled Veggie Salad (see recipe) 5 oz 

1. To prepare the crispy tortillas, lightly coat both sides of the tortillas with non-stick spray. Fold the edges over to form a rectangle approximately 4” x 7”. Press the tortillas firmly to keep them from unfolding.

2. Place the folded tortillas upside down on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a preheated 350°F convection oven for 4 minutes. Flip the tortillas over and continue to bake for another 4-6 minutes, or until crispy. Hold at room temperature.

3. To build the tortilla pizza, spread 1.25-ounces each of the refried beans on the crispy tortillas, being sure the folded edges are facing up. Top the beans with 2.50-ounces each of the chicken taco meat, and then top that with 0.25-ounce each of the shredded cheese blend. Bake in a preheated 350°F convection oven for 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

4. Finish each pizza with 0.50-ounce each of the pickled veggie salad (see recipe) and serve immediately.
