Weight Watchers Mexican Pizza

The other day I was curious to see how many points a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza would be. SEVENTEEN POINTS!!!!! No way, totally not worth it. I knew I could easily make my own to satisfy my craving. 

So that’s exactly what I did. My Mexican pizza is only 6 points on Freestyle. One thing I did to cut back on points was to use 99% fat free ground turkey instead of ground beef. I also used reduced fat Mexican cheese and fat free refried beans. It was still delicious!

Mexican Pizza

  • Servings: 4
  • Difficulty: average
  • Print

Yield: 4 Tostadas (1 tostada = 6 Freestyle points)

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb. 99% fat free ground turkey breast
  • 2 teaspoons taco seasoning
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 cup fat free refried beans
  • 1 cup reduced fat Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 cup Taco Bell mild sauce (I found this in the Mexican isle at my local grocery store)
  • 8 tostadas (the ones I used were 13 points for all 8, double check your points)
  • Extras such as chopped tomatoes, green onions, olives (calculate any additional points if necessary)

Directions:

  1. Brown the ground turkey in a frying pan. Add the taco seasoning and water and bring to a simmer. Continue to cook 3-4 minutes.
  2. Put the refried beans in a microwave safe bowl. Cook in high for 45 seconds.
  3. Take one tostada shell and spread 1/2 cup of the refried beans. Add 1/4 of the meat mixture, then top with another tostada shell.
  4. Place tostada on a baking sheet. Add 2 tablespoons of the mild sauce and 1/4 cup of the cheese.
  5. Make the other tostadas, then broil in the oven until the cheese is melted.
