Recipe Thursday - Triple-Decker Mexican Pizzas

Each Thursday, I am going to be sharing a recipe with you!I will pick a recipe from my collection and I will be sharing where I got the recipe and everything. But I am going to include my own photo of the finished food, the original recipe, and try and share the things I changed when I made it!

I would love your help too! If you have a great recipe, especially week-night dinner recipes (but I would love all kinds of recipes) - please share it with me, by emailing me at I will try it out and feature it on my blog! If you have cooking tips or anything else in regards to cooking and food - please email me!

This week's Recipe:
This makes for a quick and fast meal or a perfect snack! We loved these!  We had too big of tortillas to really make this work for triple deckers - but it was still great!

Triple-Decker Mexican Pizzas

by Pennies on a Platter

3 (14.5 oz) cans black beans, drained and rinsed or pinto beans/refried beans
* I think it could be good with taco meat too!
12 small (5- to 6-inch) flour tortillas
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese, or more or less to your preference
3 cups salsa
Salt and pepper, to taste
Sour cream, for serving

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray the tortillas with cooking spray and bake for 3 minutes, flip, then bake another 3 minutes until crisp. Set aside and keep the oven on.

In a large saucepan, mash the black beans with a potato masher until only some lumps are left. Stir in 3/4 cup of the salsa then season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cook over medium heat until heated through.

To assemble the individual pizzas: Spread a thin layer of the beans on a tortilla, then drizzle with salsa and sprinkle with cheese. Top with another tortilla and repeat the layers ending with cheese. Top with a third tortilla and repeat again ending with cheese. This makes 1 triple-decker pizza. Repeat with the remaining tortillas to make a total of 4 triple-decker pizzas. Bake on a baking sheet for 5-7 minutes, until cheese is melted. Serve with sour cream.
