    Default Mexican Deep-Dish Pan Pizza ~ 5 Points

    Hello all,

    I saw this tonight on 30 Minute Meals with Rachael Ray, and thought it sounded good. I am probably going to try it next week (I already have my grocery list together for tomorrow night's grocery run), but thought I would share ahead of time. I ran it through WW Online's Recipe Builder, and substituted Egg Beaters for the eggs, etc.

    It kind of reminds me of the Deep Dish Pizza Casserole!

    Mexican Deep Dish Pan Pizza

    POINTSŪ value: 5
    Servings: 8


    2 boxes Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix (8.5 oz. each)
    3/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
    1 1/2 cup fat-free skim milk
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    16 oz raw extra lean ground beef
    1 small onion(s), chopped
    1 Tbsp chili powder
    2 tsp ground cumin
    1 tsp hot pepper sauce
    1 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
    1/2 medium sweet red pepper(s), chopped
    2 1/4 oz chopped green chilies
    2 medium scallion(s), chopped
    2 medium tomato(es), chopped
    2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped, for garnish


    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix together 2 packages of Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix with egg substitute and milk. Spray a nonstick skillet with spray and pour in the muffin mix. Use a large skillet, 10 - 12". Choose a pan with an oven-safe handle, or double-wrap handle with foil to protect it in the oven. Plan pan in oven and bake 12-15 minutes until light golden.

    Meanwhile, brown ground beef over medium-high heat with olive oil. Add onions and spices, and cook meat 5 minutes more.

    Remove cornbread crust from oven and top with meat, cheese, and remainder of chopped vegetables. Add pan back to oven and cook 5 minutes more to melt cheese.

    Garnish with cilantro. Cut into 8 wedges, and serve from skillet. Pass taco sauce at the table (add points for taco sauce).

    This sounds yummy, Christine. I have a feeling that it would be hard for me to just eat one piece!

    Maybe you could serve it with a big 0 point salad.

    I'm going to try this one.

    Hi all,

    This was superb! I really loved it ~ and it is a keeper! I loved the sweet taste of the cornbread with the taste of the toppings!

    Two notes: (1) I did curb back on the skim milk just a bit ~ I probably added 1 1/4 cups instead of 1 1/2, and (2) I had to cook the cornbread longer, for about 20 minutes or so. I also baked this in rectangle, lasagna-type dish.

    I was looking for something to make for dinner tomorrow and this sounds really good! It's almost like a Mexican version of the Deep Dish Pizza Casserole (which I make ALL the time). Thanks Christine, I'll let you know how it turns out!
