Mexican Pizza Vegan

I made this recipe up after eating a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza.
You can top it with Daiya Cheese!  I didn’t do it this time, but I have in the past, and it’s delicious!
Serves 4
Ingredients:
*1 cup of oil of your choice
*4, 100 percent whole wheat tortillas
*1 medium onion, chopped in medium cubes
*1/2 cup fresh or canned with water low sodium mushrooms, chopped finely or use food processor
*2 can with low sodium stewed tomatoes, drained (tip save juice in fridge for another dish later)
*1 can of Taco Bell Vegetarian refried beans
*1 Tablespoon of Chilli Powder
*1 Tablespoon of Garlic Powder
*1 Teaspoon of black pepper
*1/4 cup of Enchilada sauce
*Optional for topping – black olives, Daiya Cheese, vegan pepperoni, and fresh tomatoes chopped
Step 1: Use a deep frying pan wide enough to fit a whole tortilla and put the oil in and heat up on low heat with a lid for safety
Step 2: Start chopping onions by hand to get nice size cubed chunks.  You want to be able to see them in your mixture of beans.
Step 3: Oil should be hot,  test by dipping in the end of a tortilla and if it fizzles,  let’s do this.   Put one tortilla and let it fry up about 2 minutes,  and then flip and fry for 2 minutes.  Remove and put on a paper towel lined plate and do the rest.
Step 4: Get a can or metal bowl with a lid and pour your oil in it to save for another fry fest.   Leave just a coating in the pan and dump in onions.
-Add pepper and garlic powder and fry up until translucent.
Step 5: While onions are cooking get the mushrooms ready.   Once the onions are translucent,  add your mushrooms and cook for a few minutes
Step 6: Add your refried beans and mix,  or fold in.   Let them cook for about 10 minutes and stir a few times to insure your onions and mushrooms are well blended in.
– Open enchilada sauce and add ONLY 1/4 cup and save the rest for another meal.  Add to bean mixture.
Step 7:  While the beans are cooking, use your food processor to chop the tomatoes up into a salsa type liquid.   Add 1 Tablespoon of Chilli powder before processing.   Heat in a small saucepan.
Step 8: You can add optional items to the mixture or for on top.  Sometimes I add sliced black olives to the top of my pizza and fresh tomatoes cubed.
If you want to do this start chopping and your mixtures will be ready to go when your done.
Step 9: Take a cooked tortilla and put on some bean mixture and spread.  Make sure to leave enough for all the other tortillas you fried.   You might go back for seconds because this stuff is goooooooooood.
Anyway add some of the tomato mixture to the top and spread.   Then toppings like olives or chopped fresh tomatoes.
Step 10: Pig out.
Hope you like it.  My 1 year old loves these!!   Helpful hint is to use a pizza cutter to cut into 4ths. If you use a knife everything oozes out.
And no someone didn’t sneak a bite,  the tortilla broke off when I picked it up.  Yea that’s what happened.  🙂
