Mexican Pizza

1 box (about 8 ounces), corn muffin mix

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons chili powder

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

1 can (about 16 ounces) refried beans

1 can (about 15 ounces) chili without beans

2 cups shredded Monterey jack or cheddar cheese

Optional toppings: sliced olives, chopped onion and/or peppers, corn, salsa, chopped cilantro

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

In a bowl, stir together the muffin mix, flour and chili powder. Beat in the egg and milk. Pat into the prepared pan with floured hands.

Spread the refried beans, then the chili, over the crust. Sprinkle with cheese. Add optional toppings if desired.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until cheese is melted and crust is firm. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before cutting into squares.

Makes 12 servings.
