Healthy Mexican Chicken Pizzas

Don't let this recipe confuse you or scare you off. It's really yummy! Today, we're making HEALTHY Mexican chicken pizzas...starring QUINOA! Yep, that's right a whole grain!

I recently bought a rotisserie chicken and shredded it up for different meals. For 5 bucks, it was a steal and has lasted me through a few different meals! I also used white corn tortillas, 2% milk cheese, and salsa.I began by heating the tortillas over a griddle. Heat your griddle and just move the tortilla around with your hand. When it gets warm, flip that bad boy over and repeat!Then I added the cheese, chicken, and as soon as the cheese was melting, the quinoa (which I'd made the night before). Here's a tasty tip: boil your quinoa in chicken broth instead of water!Lastly, when it's all heated up, add the top tortilla. When it's time to eat, smother that bidness with salsa and enjoy!!!I also recently found a new obsession. Now I certainly haven't been shy about professing my addiction love for diet coke, but sometimes you need to drink water, too. But I'm not gonna lie. I like flavor and bubbles. Enter flavored sparkling water. No calories, no sodium, no problem! It's a new love and I encourage you to give it a try, too!!!Thanks for visiting and checking out last night's dinner. Please let me know if you give it a try or have any healthy variations!!!

Yum! Except, now I am hungry and it is only 8:40! Lunch isn't until 1 today.

It all looks good except the questionable quinoa. I tried making it a couple of times according to the directions on the box and it just tasted like mush. I was so mushy that I couldn't eat it. I love bulger, but the quinoa was another story. Was I doing something wrong?
