Tortilla Pizza


Tortilla Pizza

When I first posted this recipe I did not post a photo, so now I am correcting this.  Enjoy

8 Wheat or flour tortillas

8 tbsp Marinara sauce

Shredded mozzerella cheese

Pepperoni

Sliced onion

Sliced pepper

Any of your favorite pizza toppings

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Sprinkle a baking sheet with the corn meal to keep the pizzas from sticking.  Place the tortillas on the baking sheet.  Place 1 tablespoon of the marinara sauce on each tortilla.  Spread the sauce to the edges.  Put on your topping of choice.  Cover the tortillas with the shredded cheese.    Sprinkle cheese with the chopped oregano and basil.  Cook until the cheese begins to turn brown, about 10 minutes.

Black Beans


Black Beans

This is a very simple and delicious side dish.  If you are concerned about the sodium content of the canned black beans, do what I do, rinse the beans under cold water before placing them in the baking dish.

Ingredients:

2 cans  Black Beans, drained and rinsed

1 tbsp. All purpose spice rub

1 tbsp. Cumin

½         Chili, chopped (optional, if you like the heat use it)

½ Cup Shredded, Mexican blend, cheese

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 370.  Place the rinsed beans in an oven safe baking dish and mix in the spice rub, cumin, and chili (if using).  Cover the top of the beans with the shredded cheese.  Cook in the oven till the cheese melts.  Do not overcook or the beans will dry out.  If you like your cheese crispy add a little water to the beans before cooking.  Remove from oven and let rest for about 5 minutes.

Eggs, Tomatoes and Cheese


Start your day off right or have this easy dish for dinner.  Once the juice is sauteed out of the tomatoes you get this marvelous flavor that goes fantastic with the eggs.

Ingredients:

4          Eggs, beaten

1          Roma tomato, chopped

¼         Yellow onion, chopped

Salt and pepper

1 tbsp. Olive or coconut oil

1 tbsp. Herbs, dried, your favorite

2 oz.    Cheese, shredded
