With a big tailgate coming up this weekend, I figured I would give you guys a couple “healthier” options to try out on Saturday. This dish will go great for a tailgate, and isn’t loaded down with all of the fat and sugar that most tailgate foods have. Not the healthiest you’re ever going to see, but definitely a better option for the Saturday party that is tailgating. Plus they’ll go perfectly with those cold beers you’re going to be drinking way too many of.
Mini Mexican Pizzas
Here’s the Dish
If you’ve ever had a Mexican Pizza at Taco Bell, you know what I mean when I say they are certainly crave-worthy! One day when I was thinking about how I could make a healthy version of these ever-popular pizzas, I thought why not take it a step further and make them mini…Because let’s face it everything is better bite size!
These mini pizza’s make the perfect well balanced snack or meal! The refried beans serve as the ’sauce’ for these pizza’s, which also make them high in fiber! They are also packed with protein thanks to the ground turkey and cheese! So, the next time your Taco Bell cravings hit, remember these little Mexican Pizza’s! They’re so tasty, you’ll never believe they’re actually good for you!
