Thank goodness for good online recipe sites. My favorite two are Taste of Home and All Recipes. If I am in a cooking rut, I am almost 100% guaranteed to find something delicious there. Here is an easy meal that all the family is sure to love. Add or subtract ingredients according to your tastes.

Mexican French Bread Pizza:

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 can (2-1/4 ounces each) sliced ripe olives, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced French bread
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Colby Jack cheese
In a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion. Add salsa, olives, salt, chili powder, garlic powder and cumin. Slice the loaf of French bread in half lengthwise. Spread equal amounts of the ground beef mixture on each half. Sprinkle one cup of cheese on each half. Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees.

I love to have this kind of recipe on hand for busy days and a special movie night snack. Your pizza looks fabulous. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings…Mary
