There seems to be a lot debate in the vegan community on why we should go oil free. Here’s great article for you to form you own opinion: https://www.forksoverknives.com/wellness/why-olive-oil-isnt-a-health-food/

Let’s assemble our Easy Mexican Pizza!

dishes of refried beans, chopped tomatoes, olives and salsa

One of the many things I love about this recipe is the versatility. It can be made with whole wheat tortillas, your favorite salsa, and the oh so many topping choices! Just add what you would normally want on your favorite taco! If you want to make this a heavier meal, you can add vegan ground crumbles to the top of the bean mixture and serve with some Mexican rice. I add jalapeños and crumbled chips for my husband, he’s a happy camper! The recipe is written as pictured, but don’t be afraid to get creative!

Start by prepping all the items first, since this all comes together fairly quickly. Pre-heat the oven and toast the tortillas for a couple minutes. Don’t forget to poke some holes in the tortillas using a fork, this keeps them from puffing up. Then prep the tomatoes, olives, green onions and cilantro. Mix the refried beans with a little water and heat in the microwave for a minute, this makes the beans easier to spread. Depending on what brand beans I’m using, I may add some Mexican spice blend to them, you can find a quick Mexican blend here: Homemade Mexican Spice Blend. Top a tortilla with the refried beans, add another tortilla, add the salsa and cheese then pop back into the oven, viola…done! Lastly, add the fresh toppings and your easy meal is ready!
