After a much needed grocery store visit Sunday evening, I came home feeling pretty ravenous. You would think that I would be able to whip something up pretty quickly with everything I bought but no…it took some thought.
After a quick debate in my head, I decided to make a slightly random version of my Healthified Mexican Pizzas.
Enter…my new favorite food. But first, credit must be given where it’s due. My friend Monica was actually the one to introduce me to said food, but I kind of forgot about trying it at her place until it caught my eye again at Trader Joe’s. Now it’s here to stay.
Dun, dun, dun…
Each wedge is about 35 calories each, and I kid you not when I say that each one is also packed with tons of flavor. YUM!
Anywho…these little pizzas may not look like much, but the flavor factor is there – trust me!
Healthified Mexican Pizzas II
2 whole wheat tortillas, crisped using my method
1/3 cup refried beans (I love the Trader Joe’s brand), divided
1 Laughing Cow Garlic & Herb cheese wedge
1 small tomato, sliced thin
1/2 avocado, diced
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
Spread half of the refried beans on each tortilla and then spread half of the cheese wedge on top of the beans. Top each half with tomato slices and diced avocado. Sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon nutritional yeast on each pizza. ENJOY!
Now, these little pizzas may not sound like much or look like much, but you better believe they tasted awesome. And this is coming from the girl who used to inhale Taco Bell Mexican Pizzas like it was her job…
What’s the most random thing you’ve eaten lately?

I love the addition of refried beans as the base. I have a can in the pantry, may just make it for lunch tomorrow!
I LOVE refried beans! Sometimes I eat them right out of the can… 🙂
The most random meals always taste the best..this looks so good! I don’t care how processed Laughing Cow wedges- I love them and they’re staying! Other than nutritional yeast, I have all these ingredients at home so it may be dinner tonight- thanks!
Exactly! I figure a little wedge can’t hurt every now and then! 🙂
I have yet to try the laughing cow cheese! It intrigues me, but I’ve just never thought to pick it up at the store!
Try them out! I didn’t mention this in my post, but it’s spreadable, so I’ll use it in my hummus sandwiches for lunch – really good!
I love laughing cow, sooo good. And I’m glad to see another use for nutritional yeast as up to this point I’ve only made an embarrassing number of batches of Mmm Sauce.
Haha. When I first bought NY, all I had in mind was Mmm Sauce. Then I started adding it to random dishes and found that it works well with most (not all)!
I never thought of using those little these things as pizza cheese. I am totally going to have to try that!
It’s actually a perfect pizza cheese and an even better sandwich spread. 🙂
i LOVE laughing cow cheese! I have the garlic and herb one right now and I eat it with my mini triscuits. 🙂 Found you at thisnotedlife–glad I did!
And I LOVE the name of you blog!!! Thanks for reading!
