Mexican Pizza is the quickest, easiest dinner idea the whole family will love!
What could be better than pizza Mexican style? Pretty much nothing. 😉
When I got my hands on a copy of Mom on Timeout’s new cookbook 100 Creative Ways to Use Rotisserie Chicken, Mexican Pizza was one of the first recipes I saw. I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, that my boys would rejoice over such a recipe. Glory to Mexican food!
It’s almost like a Mexican Calzone, with a crust of flour tortillas and a filling of refried beans, shredded rotisserie chicken and salsa. Top it off with a little enchilada sauce and cheese, bake for a few minutes and you got yourself an incredible Mexican Pizza for dinner!
This cookbook is awesome for many reasons:
- Every recipe uses rotisserie chicken. Store bought rotisserie chickens are perfect for a busy mom or dad to grab on the way home from work or to buy when planning meals, shred and refrigerate or freeze for using later.
- All the recipes are simple and easy. Honest!
- All the recipes have few ingredients, and most of them are ones you probably already have in your cupboard!
- I haven’t tried all 100 recipes but the several that I did try, I LOVED. I’m willing to bet all the recipes in this cookbook are incredible!

- 1 16 oz can low-fat refried beans (you may not need the entire can)
- 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
- 1/2 cup salsa
- vegetable oil or cooking spray
- 8 flour tortillas fajita or taco size
- 1 10 oz can red enchilada sauce (you will only need about half a can)
- 8 ounces shredded Mexican blend cheese
- 2 green onions thinly sliced
- 2 Roma tomatoes diced
- Preheat oven to 350ºF.
- Warm up beans in a small bowl in the microwave. Combine chicken and salsa in another bowl and warm it up in the microwave.
- To toast the tortillas, either heat oil in a skillet and fry both sides of the tortilla, or spray both sides of tortilla with cooking spray and heat on skillet (my preferred method).
- Lay four of the toasted tortillas on a large baking sheet. Spread with about 2 tablespoons of refried beans on each tortilla. Top with the salsa/chicken mixture, evenly dividing it among the four tortillas. Top with another toasted tortilla.
- Spread a thin layer of enchilada sauce on the top of each tortilla. Sprinkle with shredded cheese, evenly dividing it among the four pizzas. Bake in preheated oven for 5-7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
- Cut into triangles and serve immediately. Enjoy!
