Pizza
Ingredients
  • 2 ears fresh corn on the cob
  • 8 oz. lean ground beef
  • 7 oz. uncooked chorizo sausage
  • 1 15-oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large yellow sweet pepper, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup bottled chunky green salsa
  • 1 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 4 8- to 9-inch flour tortillas
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
  • Sour Cream (optional)
  • Chopped tomatoes and cilantro (optional)
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cut corn from cobs; set aside. Grease a 9-inch springform pan, large oven-going platter, or a 12-inch pizza pan; set aside.
2. In a large skillet cook beef and chorizo until brown and cooked through, breaking up any large pieces with a spatula; drain fat. Add beans to beef mixture and heat through. Cover and keep warm.
3. In another large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, sweet pepper, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally until tender, about 10 minutes. Add corn, salsa, chili powder, cumin, and cayenne. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
4. Place two of the tortillas in prepared pan. Top with meat mixture. Reserve 1/4 cup of cheese. Divide the remaining 1-1/4 cups of cheese in half; sprinkle one half on the meat mixture. Add another tortilla, vegetable mixture, and remaining half of cheese. Add final tortilla. Cover loosely with foil. Bake 10 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with reserved 1/4 cup of cheese. Bake 10 minutes more. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove sides if using springform pan. Top with sour cream, tomatoes, and cilantro. Slice with a serrated knife. Makes 6 servings.
