Recipe type: Dinner
Serves: 4 pizzas
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 (16 oz) can low-fat refried beans (you may not need the entire can)
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (I would more than likely use ground turkey)
  • ½ cup salsa
  • vegetable oil, or cooking spray (olive oil)
  • 8 flour tortillas, fajita or taco size (GF tortillas)
  • 1 (10 oz) can red enchilada sauce (you will only need about half a can) 
  • 8 ounces shredded Mexican blend cheese (dairy free)
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Warm up beans in a small bowl in the microwave. Combine chicken and salsa in another bowl and warm it up in the microwave.
  3. 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).
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Cut into triangles and serve immediately. Enjoy!

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
