Irisa’s wild Mexican pizza pie :-)

Before I separated the “Tijuana pork and chicken smokey Mexican soup” and froze it, I put some of the soup in the refrigerator; I knew I wanted to do something different with it.

And as they say the wheels on the bus go round and round in my mind and this is what I came up with!

I keep these pre-made shells in the freezer for days much like today, you can do so many different styles of pizza once you get out of your comfort zone.

NOTE:
It is really important to drain the meat/vegetables very well, if not you could end up with a soggy pizza.

1Put a strainer over a measuring cup, and keep putting the soup into it until you have 1 cup of liquid.

2Put enough soup into the strainer { 1 & ¼ cups } over another bowl and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour. You will want to have this mixture to be a dry as possible.

3In a small sauce pot put the soup base and tomato sauce bring it to a boil and then turn it down on low, cook till it reduces to ¾ cup. This will take some time but don’t try to rush this because all that will happen is it will burn. And that’s all the prep this dish needs, now all you’ll need to do is assemble it.
