Rice Tortilla Pizza

This weekend the kids wanted personal pizzas…since we don’t eat yeast products in our house, the gluten-free options for pizza crusts are limited.  I usually use rice cakes as a base, but it takes A LOT of those to fill up my household of 5!  Everyone liked these…even our adult non-FAILSAFE-ers…

Food For Life brown rice tortillas

Butter, melted

1 clove Garlic, minced

Hamburger, cooked & salted

Cheese (Farmers or Mozzarella), shredded/sliced

Green Onion, chopped (if desired)

Sour Cream (if desired)

********************************************************************************************************************************

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Lay out the tortillas on a baking sheet, not overlapping.  Mix melted butter and garlic together, brush on tortillas-make sure to evenly coat the tortilla all of the way to the edges for a yummier crust.  Top with hamburger and cheese.  Bake at 350 degrees until cheese is melted & bubbly.  Top with chopped green onion & sour cream.

We had leftovers and these were delicious reheated in the microwave…also good as a lunchbox item!

Busy night Nachos

This is a staple meal at our home…made at least once a week.  We like to switch up the ingredients based on what we have on hand or from whatever leftovers are available.  To complete the meal, serve with a side salad and dish of pear sauce.  It is great for nights when sports/clubs/meetings/practices take over the schedule.

1.  Base-

Kettle Chips (our favorite)

Fried Potato slices

2.  Cheese-

Farmer’s cheese

Mozzarella cheese

Cream cheese

*Any Mixture of the above (I like to add the cream cheese in little spoonfuls amidst the other cheese to make a creamier texture)

3.  Toppings-

Cooked hamburger (we like it with garlic cooked in)

Leftover cooked shredded chicken

Leftover cooked shredded beef roast

Green onion

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  On a large cookie sheet layer the base, then cheese, then topping.  Cook for about 10 mins or until cheese is melted.  Serve immediately.

Condiments…

Sour cream

“Ranch dressing” (sour cream, chopped green onion, garlic and salt…dilute with milk if needed to get consistency)
