Does anyone have a low calorie version of this

    ... The Taco Bell version only has 530 calories. Were you looking to go lower than that?

    Right, but a home made version is going to use the same ingredients and typically end up at around the same number of calories for size. Mine end up being about 700 calories because I pile on the meats for protein and I'm not shy with the cheese. Essentially, it's a tortilla with refried beans and cheese on top, with some tomato, black olive and green onion for garnish and a bit of hot sauce if you're feeling frisky. The tortilla, beans, and cheese quantity will control your calories. You can do low fat beans, low fat cheese or a smaller tortilla if you like - just evaluate what part of the equation is most important to you and cut back on the other calorie dense parts of the recipe. Use less beans or a smaller tortilla maybe? It's a matter of preference at that point.

    It may be some form of heresy, but my favorite hot sauce for Tex-Mex pizza is Sriracha... :)

    Why don’t you use a tortilla, smother with tomato paste, with fried herbs sprinkled over, any veg you want with chicken,chorizo, ham,bacon etc of your choice with a small sprinkling of cheese over the top. Cook in the oven for 5 mins x
