Easy Southwest Pizza Recipe

Easy Southwest Pizza Recipe

Hello Everyone!

I'm back again with another awesome, fun, and easy recipe for you to try this weekend. YES! A super easy Southwest Pizza- Yum! and its so good, seriously good! Can you tell that I'm so excited writing about this recipe at this moment? I can't content myself. (hehehe)
I actually found this recipe on a circular ad while browsing through weekly sales. Let me tell you- I'm so glad I did try the southwest pizza recipe, because its just simply scrumptious. My kids did not even noticed the black beans that I put on the pizza, totally loved it!
The recipe below is good for 4-6 serving. I suggest to double the quantity for larger crowd. I also think that you can add some of your favorite toppings like lettuce or tomato on top since its kinda like a taco pizza. BUT, if you want to keep it simple just like mine then no need to add extra toppings. Are you all ready to make some southwest pizza? Come on and check out the recipe below. Happy cooking! Don't forget to put more cheese on top!:)

1/2 cup- drained, rinsed black beans
2 tablespoon of Taco seasoning mix
1 can of 8 oz tomato sauce
1/2 pound ground beef
1 prebaked pizza crust (12-inch)
1 cup shredded cheese
1/4 cup sliced green onions


1.) Preheat oven to 450 degree Fahrenheit.
2.) In separate bowl. Combine the tomato sauce, taco seasoning mix and drained, rinsed black beans. Set aside.
3.) Cooked the ground beef into a medium size skillet for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Drained and set aside.

4.) I sprayed the baking pan with non-stick cooking spray and spread the prebaked pizza crust.
5.) Spread the sauce mixture on the top pizza crust. Add the cooked ground beef on top, cheese galore and the green onion.
6.) Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the cheese are melts.
7.) Enjoy and serve it hot! Yummm!!:)

Sliced Southwest Pizza is ready. Grab some!:)

I know its kinda different from your typical pizza night but this recipe is so good. Kinda like a combination of taco and pizza night together. So scrumptious and super easy to make, so perfect for taco/pizza family night or even potluck parties.
This recipe is highly recommended by (SweetCuisinera)... ME!:) I'll promise you! this is going to be your next dinner favorites. I hope this recipe will inspires you to cook some delicious food and try new recipe.
Have a great weekend ahead everyone and I'll see you in few days for more delicious recipes. Keep that smile coming and always stay gorgeous! wink:)

Quick and Fun Party Ideas

Pacquiao VS Mayweather Fight Mini Party


Hello Everyone!
How are you all doing today? I know its been awhile since the last time I blog. I was super busy in past couple weeks and my allergies is kicking me out badly. I feel a little better now though (wink)
Anyways, I'm sure most of you watched the fight of the century the "Mayweather vs Pacquiao's" fight and of course being a huge fan of Manny Pacquiao, I hosted a little party for me and my friends. It was so much watching the fight and of course hanging out with each other. Join me as we discover few party ideas and food recipes for this most awaited fight of all time. Yippee!:)

Let's get is ON!
Start it off with DRINKS, Silverware and Snacks
-  I like to have a varieties of drinks from bottled water, tea, different kind of soda's and of course alcoholic drink that includes beer, margarita's and what not.
- In this party I mostly used paper plates, plastic cups,plastic forks and spoon for easy clean up. .
- Then, a lot of SNACKS- and that includes my favorite back home which is Chippy and Piattos and of course the classic snack chips and dip. Yum!

Food Ideas!
- We had Pizza galore. Yes! I mean 6-7 boxes of pizza's. We also have rice, dried fish, milkfish, mung bean stew, green beans and adobo.
- For our dessert we have german chocolate cake, binangkal and cassava cake.

My friends brought some food to share which makes it so much easier and fun! For more food recipes check out My Favorite Recipe Collections, Bread and Pastry Confections, No Bake merienda, Product Reviews with few recipes featured.

Feeling the MOMENT!

-After our dinner, the fight begun and it was like a roller coaster of emotions. At least for me, I was so nervous the whole time. We were screaming and cheering the whole time and before we knew it..its OVER!

 The pay per view was so expensive and I felt like its not worthed for 30 minutes running around, threw few punches here and there, and hugs galore. The excitement lasted only for few minutes, until I realized that they're doing same thing over and over again run, punch and hugs.
Win or loss- I'm still so proud of Manny Pacquiao and in my heart his truly the champion.
and to all my friends who came over and joined the fun. (Thank you so much ) Do you think that the re-match will happen? Share me your thoughts about the fight. I' d love to know :)

Cheers everyone and I'll see you in few days for more scrumptious recipes and more. Have a great day! smile a lot and stay gorgeous!
