Mexican Pizza

by Meghann on March 30, 2010

Want to know what’s been brewing in my head all day?


Mexican Pizza!



It all started with the Whole Wheat Pitas I purchased at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday and could not wait to try.


Next the black beans that went into the food processor with some fresh cilantro and a drizzle of EVOO.



A concoction I knew would make the base for a Mexican themed pizza.


A sprinkle of cheese and asparagus for color.


The pizza baked at 415 for 10 minutes. Once out I topped it with green onion, black olives, avocado, salsa…


and maduros (sweet plantains)! ๐Ÿ™‚


I had never made maduros before and sort of made it up as I went by slicing the plantain and baking them at 415 for 20 minutes.



The maduros made a sweet topping to the pizza, but weren’t as great as the ones I’ve had at restaurants. I’m not sure the plantain was black enough to get the full flavor just yet.


My new obsession with Naturally Nutty’s Cinnamon Vanilla Sunflower Butter is a bit out of control.


I seriously CRAVE it during the day. It was amazing with some carrot sticks at my desk this afternoon.


FYI: printing 105 copies of a 2-sided 35 page document takes roughly 2 hours. Just in case you were wondering. :/

Dessert this evening was the last bit of the Spicy Chocomize Dark Chocolate Bar I had created.


I miss my chocomize bars already. ๐Ÿ™

A Shaklee Review

Laura from On the Threshold of Greatness recently became an independent distributor for Shaklee and offered to send me a sample of their H2 organic cleaner to test out.


In case you’re like me and are unfamiliar with Shaklee let me fill you in…

Shaklee produces environmentally friendly household products, as well as nutritional supplements. Every product that goes into every Shaklee bottle is designed to improve health, work without compromise, and be gentle on the planet.

The company is very green and their site is all about promoting a healthier life and enviroment. It’s a company I could definitely get onboard with.


The Basic H2 Organic Super Cleaning Concentrate I received came with three spray bottles and instructions on how to create an all-purpose cleaner, degreaser, and window cleaner right on the bottle.

Just fill the bottle with 16 oz of water

And add the suggested amount of H2 concentrate.

Easy Peasy.

Apparently the 16oz of H2 concentrate will create up to 48 gallons of cleaner.

For the past week I’ve been using the H2 concentrate in all three formulas and admit that I am impressed. I love how there isn’t a funky smell, it’s great at cleaning messes, and how long I know this product will last.

Don’t believe me? Well here’s a chance to check it out for yourself.

To enter to win a bottle of Shaklee H2 Concentrate just leave a comment on this post telling me you favorite and least favorite household chore.

  • Favorite – Does cooking dinner count as a household chore?
  • Least Favorite – hmm… all of them? lol

You have until tomorrow evening when I will draw a random winner for my evening post.

Good Luck!

least favorite – the shower/tub. Ick.

3 Matt March 30, 2010 at 10:35 pm

LOL I thought those were SCALLOPS when I first saw that pizza!

4 Brynn March 30, 2010 at 10:37 pm

Favorite chore: Cleaning the kitchen.
Least favorite: Laundry!! Such a pain when you share with the rest of the building.

5 laura t. March 30, 2010 at 10:38 pm

you arent going to believe this, but i LOVE doing dishes. i find it soo relaxing for some reason ๐Ÿ™‚

i actually really like to clean, but i guess you could say my least favorite activity is dusting. i always feel like im just moving the dust somewhere else and its never really beneficial!

6 Allie (Live Laugh Eat) March 30, 2010 at 10:39 pm

It’s like a pizza taco!!

Favorite chore: Ummm laundry? Kinda…

Least Fav: Cleaning the bathroom—ick. I have a serious b-room phobia.

Clearly chores are not my favorite.

7 Becky March 30, 2010 at 10:48 pm

My least favorite chore is taking out the trash/recycling, and doing laundry (the basement of my apartment is creepy)…luckily my boyfriend does those things, and I do extra dishes and kitchen/bedroom cleaning/sweeping (his least favorite household chores) instead! The cleaner looks awesome and I love that it doesn’t have a weird smell!!

8 Brittney March 30, 2010 at 10:50 pm

Favorite chore: cleaning the kitchen
least favorite: sweeping and mopping, my whole house is hardwood floors and I have sweep three times a day and mop everyother!

9 Emily March 30, 2010 at 10:50 pm

That pizza looks quite yummy!! So glad you like the Vanilla Cinnamon SSND. I was scared when you mentioned you didn’t like the sample of SSNB you received!!

I can’t say that I have a favorite chorse haha, but if I had to choose the one I don’t doing would probably be the dishes. All I have to do is pop them in the dishwasher and they’re done!

My least favorite is laundry. I hate folding them! I let them pile up on my kitchen table until it won’t hold anymore! lol

10 Cathy March 30, 2010 at 10:54 pm

I actually might venture to say laundry is my favorite chore. I loving having a huge selection of clothes to workout in!

My least favorite is mopping the kitchen floor. That i could definitely do without.

11 Dawn March 30, 2010 at 10:54 pm

Favorite: De-cluttering my room. ๐Ÿ™‚ or Yard work, like gardening or racking the leaves.

LEAST: swiping anything dusty, smelly, or sticky. ๐Ÿ˜›

12 Meredith March 30, 2010 at 10:54 pm

favorite: washing dishes! I love a clean kitchen.

least favorite: vacuuming. ugh.

13 mal March 30, 2010 at 10:54 pm

i love dusting, haha it’s probably the easiest chore.
but i really do not like vacuuming the stairs… too much work!

14 Krista March 30, 2010 at 11:00 pm

Favorite Chore: Laundry, but I live in an apartment and sharing sucks!
Least Favorite: Cleaning the bathroom, so gross!

15 NB March 30, 2010 at 11:01 pm

Favorite household chore is clipping coupons from the sunday paper! Least favorite is ironing though I do like to fold clothes ๐Ÿ™‚

16 Waking Up Hungry March 30, 2010 at 11:06 pm

I don’t mind doing the dishes…but I hate hanging/folding the laundry!!

Your pizza looks great BTW!

17 genesis March 30, 2010 at 11:08 pm

i dislike cleaning the bathroom.

favorite is washing dishes because its like meditating when washing. lol.

18 christina c March 30, 2010 at 11:08 pm

favorite: vacuuming
least favorite: laundry

are plaintains good to eat like a regular banana? they scare me because they’re so dark ๐Ÿ™‚

19 missyrayn March 30, 2010 at 11:08 pm

Favorite: Cooking
Least Favorite: Cleaning the kitchen afterward (I’m a messy cook :0) )

Traditional Maduros are deep fried so you probably didn’t get the same flavor from baking. Maybe try misting with olive oil and broiling them.

20 eatdrinkandbemerrynyc March 30, 2010 at 11:09 pm

Wow that pizza looks amazing! When I saw “mexican pizza” I admit I didn’t think much of it, but this is highly inventive and the maduros are amazing! My boyfriend is half cuban, needless to say we love maduros!

21 maren March 30, 2010 at 11:10 pm

i do not like sweeping/cleaning the floors… but i don’t mind doing the dishes…

ps maduros in restaurants are probly better because they are sauteed with good stuff like brown sugar, honey, or butter? or they at least have something else on them

22 Danielle March 30, 2010 at 11:10 pm

Favorite: Vacuuming (for some strange reason, I find it calming)
Least favorite: Anything that involves cleaning the bathroom. Yuck.

23 katie k March 30, 2010 at 11:11 pm

Favorite: folding laundry
Least favorite: cleaning the bathroom

I could use some cleaning supplies! I’m about to move to a new apartment and it will need some deep cleaning (I’m neurotic about that – no matter if the previous tenants cleaned on their way out)!

24 Jenny March 30, 2010 at 11:11 pm

Fun question! My favorite task…sweeping the kitchen. Least favorite….putting away folded laundry.

25 Robin March 30, 2010 at 11:12 pm

Favorite: Definitely filing away paperwork. I love organizing.

Least Favorite: Cleaning the bathroom!!!!!

26 KatieTX March 30, 2010 at 11:13 pm

As much as you can like a chore..I would say laundry. My absolute least favorite is dishes, mostly because you have to do them so often!! My mom has been ordering vitamins and supplement from Shaklee for a long time! Great company!

27 Lish March 30, 2010 at 11:13 pm

Favorite: Cooking, if that counts, and if not, I’d have to say next would be doing the dishes (pre-rinse, washing, loading dishwasher, unloading… all of it).

Least favorite: folding towels & putting my clothes away. I’m the type of person who has clean piles of laundry all over her room & an almost empty walk-in closet.

28 Ellen March 30, 2010 at 11:15 pm

favorite: cooking (i think that totally counts!) i also don’t mind cleaning the kitchen, the fridge, the cabinets, etc. since i like to cook, my OCD comes out in making sure the kitchen’s in good working order all the time.

least favorite: cleaning anything bathroom related. i have serious avoidance issues in this area. blech.

29 amanda March 30, 2010 at 11:20 pm

My favorite would have to be cleaning the kitchen because I like having a clean kitchen, while it could be a pain it like the outcome! Least favorite is cleaning the bathroom or laundry. I despise both!

30 ashley March 30, 2010 at 11:22 pm

Least favorite: bathrooms!!!

31 Cheryl H. March 30, 2010 at 11:22 pm

I despise having to clean the bathroom ~ all of it!

32 Steph March 30, 2010 at 11:25 pm

My favorite is anything that involves being in the kitchen….mainly cooking dinner, but I also don’t mind the dishes! Least favorite is mopping or cleaning bathrooms.

33 Sarah March 30, 2010 at 11:27 pm

I love doing laundry! I hate taking out the trash, but my hubby usually does that ๐Ÿ˜€ So I guess the one that I hate that I actually have to do is cleaning the bathroom, ick.

34 Amanda March 30, 2010 at 11:27 pm

Gah! Plaintains on a pizza, how awesome!

42 Brandy March 30, 2010 at 11:37 pm

Favorite – Laundry! There is something about the smell of fabric softener and clean, warm, clothes.
Least favorite – Unloading the dishwasher…clean dishes don’t have the same appeal as clean clothes!

43 Kendall @ Whisk Her Away March 30, 2010 at 11:50 pm

Favorite – vacuuming. I love when you can hear the vacuum sucking up things. haha.
Least Favorite – laundry…I get ambitious, put a load of laundry in to wash, move it to the dryer, dry it, and then leave it for at least a week…

44 Kim March 30, 2010 at 11:53 pm

Favorite: Hmm… laundry, maybe?

Least favorite: Dishes. UGH.

45 Emily March 30, 2010 at 11:59 pm

Next time I would try pan cooking the plantains. Most of the restaurant ones are fried, but you can get pretty close to the texture/taste just sauteing them.

46 Julia March 31, 2010 at 12:01 am

Those products sound awesome!
My favorite chore is unloading the dish washer.
My least favorite is cleaning the shower – I feel like they never get clean!

57 Molly @fuelherup March 31, 2010 at 12:47 am

Wow! To be honest, that naturally nutty was the first nut butter i’ve ever truly hated! Seriously! I want so bad to love it, but it almost makes me a little sick! Maybe it’s the sweetness? But I have a sweet tooth- I love cinnamon, I love vanilla, I love sunflower seed butter, but I’m just not a fan!

I have a couple jars – unfortunately I already dipped into both or I’d send them to you!

58 alexisashley March 31, 2010 at 12:54 am

68 Nicole March 31, 2010 at 4:47 am

Least Favorite: sweeping

97 Emily March 31, 2010 at 7:53 am

most hated: cleaning bathrooms. UGH.

99 Virginia March 31, 2010 at 8:00 am

100 Anna March 31, 2010 at 8:13 am

favorite = washing windows. I used to be obsessed when I was little, I’m sure my mom loved me for it! least fave = mopping floor, just cause it seems like such a production.

Favourite: Cooking
Least Favourite: Cleaning the Shower.

102 Jessie March 31, 2010 at 8:21 am

The household chore that I mind the least (that as close as I get to a favorite) is probably laundry. The chore I like the least is cleaning the hardwoods. My dog get hair everywhere!

103 Courtney March 31, 2010 at 8:22 am

Favorite: Laundry
Least Favorite: Dishes

104 Erin March 31, 2010 at 8:24 am

I think the key to getting plaintains to taste like the restaurant is to “fry” them. I always cook mine in a little butter in a skillet on the stove top. Not as healthy as roasting, but something about the butter really brings out the flavor.

As for chores, I’d guess my favorite is decluttering. Least favorite? Mopping.

105 Meg March 31, 2010 at 8:25 am

favorite = cooking
least favorite = almost anything else? no…i think cleaning the bathroom takes the cake!

Least favorite: scrubbing the bath tub. I loathe it.

109 Kristie March 31, 2010 at 8:33 am

Most favorite – laundry’s not so bad. I bet I will like it even more when I have my own washer and dryer + don’t have to scrounge for quarters to do it!
Least favorite – definitely scrubbing the tub. My tub used to not drain properly and so it would get dirty really fast too, which meant more cleaning + harder stains to get out. Blech!

110 Kristie March 31, 2010 at 8:33 am

Favorite – laundry

My lease favorite chore is cleaning the fish bowl. It takes less than 5 minutes but it’s something I always dread doing!

120 Rachael March 31, 2010 at 9:00 am

I LOVE doing laundry.. but I abhor ironing! Yuck!

121 Molly March 31, 2010 at 9:00 am

My favorite chore is cleaning the bathroom because it’s so easy and satisfying to see the results!

Favorite chore- I don’t really mind vacuuming and doing the laundry
Least favorite- Cleaning the bathroom, its a real “chore” and I don’t like it one bit.

131 Katherine March 31, 2010 at 9:20 am

Hmm ‘favorite’ and ‘chore’ don’t go together to me ๐Ÿ™‚

If I had to choose, I would say that my favorite chore is washing the dishes…as long as I have dishwashing gloves, I really don’t mind.

My least favorite is definitely scrubbing the bathtub…I dread doing that every single time!

132 Kelly March 31, 2010 at 9:22 am

My fav is cooking dinner also! Least fav cleaning the bathroom… gross.

133 Haley March 31, 2010 at 9:25 am

The sad thing is: I LOVE cleaning…I think it’s my destressor! So, really, all of the chores are my favorite…actually, all of them are my favorite EXCEPT cleaning the toilet. No one really likes that!

134 brandi March 31, 2010 at 9:28 am

great looking pizza! I love shaklee meal shakes and we have TONS of their vitamins, but I’ve never tried these cleaners!

Favorite: Dusting – easy!
Least Favorite: Vacuuming. Our vacuum is heavy and our house it 2 stories – it’s a pain.

135 fitandfortysomething March 31, 2010 at 9:31 am

hate them all that is why i have a house keeper! but i still have to empty the dishwasher and i HATE that ๐Ÿ™

136 Sammie March 31, 2010 at 9:35 am

I love to vacuum – I sort of have an obsession with it (at least my floors are clean). I am not really a fan of dusting. Unfortunately, my very old house gets dusty quite quickly (like, I dust in the AM and it looks like I didn’t by evening).
I just finally ordered Charlie 3 custom chocolate bars (I added the bacon bits to one – he is gonna freak). I am going to surprise him with them – he is such a chocoholic.
Have a great day!!

137 Leslie Moore March 31, 2010 at 9:40 am

First, I have to win b/c I am actually familiar with Shaklee – my first “coloring” with makeup was done by a Shaklee Rep when I was in 8th grade. I think I was a “summer” on the color wheel. They used to make makeup and everything. I didn’t know they were such a green company.

Favorite – vacuuming with my awesome Dyson – best vacuum ever and fun to use.
Least Favorite – cleaning tub/shower (that is why the hus does it)!

138 Heather ODonnell March 31, 2010 at 9:47 am

HECK yeahhh cooking counts as a household chore. I told my bf last night that i would rather go to the gym and run 6 miles (I’m still a beginner, so 6 is A LOT to me) than cook on a weekday. He looked at me like I had 12 eyes.

Favorite chore….don’t have one!! Loading the dishwasher? hahaha
Least favorite chore – bathroom tub, toilet, and sink cleaning…and scrubbing kitchen floors!!

141 Anica March 31, 2010 at 9:55 am

172 WendyF March 31, 2010 at 10:47 am

Favourite = cleaning the kitchen floor. Strangely satisfying !

Least favourite = putting away clean laundry. Cleaning it, fine, but putting it away is my very least favourite thing to do.

173 Lauren March 31, 2010 at 10:48 am

Least favorite would have to be cleaning the floors. One of my favorites is vacuuming though – I think because you can cover so much ground so quickly!

174 Kate March 31, 2010 at 11:01 am

Um, favorite? I guess vacumming. You dont really get too dirty and you can always see the results. Least favorite – Washing dishes. No dishwasher. Ugh!

175 JEAN March 31, 2010 at 11:07 am

My favorite chore is…..hmmmmm…..dusting?

My least favorite chore is BATHROOMS. Ugh!

176 Rachel521 March 31, 2010 at 11:10 am

Favorite chore — Hmm… this is a tough one… making the bed. hahaha

Least Favorite chore – LAUNDRY! I know it’s pretty simple, but i like things that are quick and easy… not waiting for the wash to finish and then put it in the dryer. And let’s not get into folding and putting away. It’s a BIG process.

177 Autumn Tao March 31, 2010 at 11:13 am

Favorite: Organizing! Pantry, closets, bills, ect!
Least Fav: Vacuuming and making the bed, both which my husband voluntarily does… how amazing is that?

178 katie March 31, 2010 at 11:18 am

i felt the same way about that sunflower butter – i’d start eating it with carrots or an orange, and then after that was finished i’d just it eat straight out of the jar. i ended up having to throw the unfinished jar out cause i had no self control with it. it was very sad ๐Ÿ™

can’t say i really have a favorite chore – maybe unloading the dishwasher, since it’s over pretty quickly. my least favorite would probably be doing laundry – especially now that i have to walk a few blocks to the laundromat.

179 Hillary B March 31, 2010 at 11:18 am

Fave: folding laundry (I just put some music on and jam out!)

Least Fave: washing dirty dishes!

Luckily my boyfriend (who I live with) has the opposite favorite and least favorite chores! He hates folding laundry but loves doing the dishes (!?) JACKPOT! Haha we compromise – he does the dirty dishes and i fold the laundry ๐Ÿ™‚

185 Erin March 31, 2010 at 11:41 am

My favorite household chore has got to be tending to the compost. I love to know that those little worms are taking care of all of my trash and I like knowing that I am helping a living creature.

My least favorite household chore has to be vacuuming. I didn’t have a vacuum for the first two years I lived on my own and I barely noticed I hate it that much. I’m glad my boyfriend’s favorite chore is vacuuming or else it probably would never get done.

186 Beth March 31, 2010 at 11:41 am

I like vacuuming, especially since we replaced our old, 1970s model with a new one that actually works! Plus I love how the dogs ‘attack’ it. So funny!

Least favorite would be cleaning the tub. We go through a bottle of draino a week trying to keep it draining so needless to say its a bit gunky. I could definitely put these products to the test with that beast!

I know I’m weird, but I actually enjoy doing dishes! After making a mess cooking dinner, I really enjoy the sight of a clean kitchen after clearing everything up. That being said, I hate all cleaning that must be done in the bathroom. Too many gross cracks and crevices to clean.
