4 Cheese Mexican Tortilla Appetizers

4 Cheese Mexican Tortilla AppetizersThese quick and easy Mexican-style "pizza wedges" use oven-crisped flour tortillas instead of traditional pizza dough. Great served as an appetizer, a midnight snack, lunch or even as a light supper.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1 (16-ounce) can ORTEGA Refried Beans
1/2 cup ORTEGA Thick & Smooth Taco Sauce - Medium
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup sliced green onions (about 3)
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
2 cups 4 cheese Mexican blend (8 ounces)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Place tortillas on baking sheet(s). Bake for 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp.
  2. Spread refried beans evenly on tortillas. Spread 1 tablespoon taco sauce over beans. Top with bell peppers, green onions and crushed red pepper. Sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Bake for 7 to 8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into wedges.
