Category 2 : TexMex
Recipes Summary : I first saw this recipe on Rachael Ray's 30 minute meals. It was so much what I like to eat that I tried it for myself with some variations of my own.
Servings : 4
Prep Time : 30 Mins.
Recipe : Ingredients

1 loaf baguette
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, 1 turn of the pan
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 pickled hot pepper, chopped
1 (15-ounce) can black beans
2 teaspoons hot sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
Salt and pepper
1 cup prepared salsa
2 cups shredded low fat Cheddar, smoked Cheddar, Monterey Jack or pepper Jack
4 cups shredded lettuce
1/2 cup olives, chopped
1/4 red onion
2 tomatoes, diced


Split bread lengthwise. Hollow the bread out and cut each half in half across, making 4 boats.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil, 1 turn of the pan, garlic and hot peppers. Drain beans. Add half of the beans then mash the remainder of the beans in the can using a fork. Add mashed beans to the pan and combine with whole beans. Season beans with hot sauce, chili powder, salt and pepper. When the spicy beans are hot through, spread them evenly across all of the bread. Top with salsa and liberally sprinkle with cheese, covering bread to all edges. The boats will only be half-full. Melt cheese in the oven until it bubbles and begins to brown.

Top Nacho Bread Pizzas with lettuce, olives, onions and tomatoes and serve.
