Tortillas are lightly fried to make a crisp base in these fun Mexican-inspired 'pizzas'. They are topped with refried beans, tomatoes, cheese, olives and spring onions.
You can also crisp up the tortillas on a barbecue or under a grill.
I made enough for three people. I did not worry about pan frying them, I just heated them on both sides of the tortilla in the skillet, took the tortilla out, laid the warm tortilla on a foil lined cookie sheet and topped it, then baked it until everything was warm and melty. I served this with my homemade salsa. I loved the simplicity of this recipe (the kids thought that tortilla pizzas were great) and it used the rest of a package of tortillas I had to get rid of. Win/win. I'll make this again. - 21 Apr 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My family LOVED these and they are so easy to put together! I did use chives instead of green onions because I have an herb explosion in my backyard right now--including cilantro! These are perfect for a quick Cinco de Mayo party, and so simple to do you can throw a party in minutes ; ). We ate ours with sour cream and taco sauce.

A very simple quick summer night meal, especially if you let the hubs do the tortilla cooking while you cut everything up. He actually cooked both sides of the tortilla, then we topped with the toppings, the beans were so hot the cheese melts when you put it over them. We actually make this often but use flour tortillas in a burrito style so corn was a nice treat. I checked three stores and the largest corn tortillas I could find were only 5 1/2 inch, but still worked fine. Oh almost forgot this was the recipe of the week selection.
