"Skinny" Mexican Pizzas

I actually made these the night before we went out of town last week... just now getting a chance to post it. This uses ground turkey and you dress up the meat so much you can't even tell... at least Will couldn't! Also, be careful with your tortillas in the broiler. They can burn pretty quickly... broil with caution!

6 whole wheat flour tortillas, medium sized
1 lb lean ground turkey
seasonings - salt, pepper, cumin, chili powder, oregano
1 pkt of beef flavored "flavor boost" (concentrated stock)
1 pkg taco seasoning
3/4 c water
1 can fat free refried beans
1/2 cup chicken stock
medium taco sauce
salsas of choice - Herdez red salsa and green salsa verde
1 diced tomato
1 small can sliced black olives
Mexican blend grated cheese
2 fresh green onions, thinly sliced

Spritz the whole wheat tortillas with olive oil spray and broil in the oven about 4-5 minutes per side until puffy and golden. Break up and brown the ground turkey in a non-stick skillet. Add 1/2 tsp salt, 1 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tbsp cumin, 1 tsp chili powder, and 1 tsp dried oregano to the turkey as it is browning. Once it's cooked through, add one packet of beef "flavor boost" stock, the taco seasoning, and water. Let it cook until this makes a thicker sauce, then turn off the heat.

Put the refried beans in a skillet and add about 1/2 c chicken broth. This will thin out the beans and add flavor so you can spread it. 

Assembly: To the bottom tortilla, paint with red salsa, then add meat and a layer of cheese. To the second tortilla, add beans, then flip over where the beans are on the bottom next to the cheese. To the top of the second tortilla, paint with green salsa, add cheese, taco sauce, tomatoes, olives and green onions.

Bake at 400 degrees until all melted or put it back under the broiler in the oven. Cut into wedges and serve with condiments of choice.
