Spicy Mexican Chicken Pizza

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving break. We had a nice time. We stayed home and had dinner by ourselves (which made for lots and lots of leftovers) but spent a lot of time outdoors with neighbors so we were definitely not lonely. We also had new hardwood floors put in downstairs so that was very exciting.

Needless to say, the weekend flew by and now here we are. Hello Monday – no, I really didn’t miss you:-).

Oh well, sometimes it feels good to get back into the swing of things (I will keep telling myself that today.)

I love Mexican food and I am actually kind of surprised that I don’t have more Mexican recipes here on the blog. It’s probably because my Mexican inspired meals are kind of just things we whip up vs. actual recipes. This pizza isn’t really a recipe either, but it was really good, so I did think it was “blogworthy.”

This was a joint effort between Jim and I. It turned out great and I loved the refried bean layer. I also couldn’t get enough of the pickled jalapeno’s that we spread out on top. We used some leftover grilled chicken, but you could certainly leave the chicken off and you would have a great (and very filling) meatless pizza.

    Why does my family hate beans! This looks so amazing!


  1. […] I can’t remember anything else, but for some reason all three of those were big hits. I still to this day wonder what went in the chocolate chip cookies that made them taste so good. I remember the cheese on the pizza was really weird….and the Sloppy Joe’s were definitely questionable. Nothing like these sloppy joe’s or this pizza. […]

  2. […] Mexican Spicy Chicken Pizza […]
