Wow! This was great! I was so surprised when I first bit into it, because I thought it would taste like a typical mexican dish. But somehow this combination of flavors ends up tasting much more complex, almost gourmet. I think it's one of the best things I've ever made.
I did make a few substitutions, due to lack of ingredients on hand, but I don't think these substitutions drastically changed the basic flavors. I used a couple of Costco whole wheat rollups instead of the pizza crust, which I brushed with olive oil. I used Chipotle Tobasco for the hot sauce. And I used parmeggiano reggiano instead of monterey jack. I added a little leftover rotisserie chicken for my meat-loving husband. Also, FYI, I used good quality Vermont sharp white cheddar cheese.
I used the food processor to pulse the black bean mixture, added the onion to that and about half the salsa to smooth it into a paste. Again, I know these were changes to the original recipe, but I just thought the food processor was easier than the mashing and chopping by hand.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.
