Tortilla Pizza's

I made my best super thin, Burrito sized Tortilla Pizzas today! The secret is prebake the tortilla for 5 minutes at 425 degrees, right on the wire rack of my toaster/convection oven. Then place the slightly crisp tortilla on a oil sprayed baking sheet. Spray the tortilla with olive oil and spread on 1/3 Cup pizza sauce and 3/4 cup Mozzarella/Pizza cheese. Bake 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Top is bubbly and browned in spots. Cut on a cutting board before sliding onto a plate. About 600 calories for the whole thing.

Bacon Corn Chowder

1/2 Pound bacon cut in 1/2" pieces

3 Cups fresh cut Corn or use canned corn

1 pound ring of Kielbasi cut in small pieces

2 Cups diced potatoes

1 onion diced

1 Cup celery diced

2 cups half and half

2 Cups water

Garlic Powder
Seasoned Salt
Hot Shot

Brown bacon and drain, add onion and celery and cook until soft.
Get a large pot and throw in bacon mixture, kielbasi, potatoes, water and seasoning.
After potatoes are tender add the half and half, and cook a while longer over low heat before serving.
(I would use a crock pot!)

NOTE: My mother made this soup and it was DELICIOUS! I wanted to eat it again for supper tonight but there wasn't much left!
