Santa Fe Foldover

This meal is from Betty Crocker's Cooking for 2. :)

1 cup Bisquick Heart Smart mix
2 tablespoons cornmeal
1/4 cup very hot water
1 cup canned no-salt-added black beans, drained, rinsed
1/3 cup chunky salsa
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
1/4 cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend
1/2 cup shredded lettuce
1/3 cup chopped tomato
sour cream

1. Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat over to 375*F. Spray 12-inch pizza pan with cooking spray.
2. In a small bowl, stir Bisquick mix, cornmeal, and very hot water until a soft dough forms. Place on surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix, gently rolling to coat. Shape into ball; knead about 5 times or until smooth. Roll dough into 10-inch circle. Place on pizza pan.
3. In another bowl, stir together beans and salsa; spread over dough to within 2 inches of edge. Sprinkle with onions. Fold edge over. Sprinkle cheese over beans.
4. Bake 25 to 28 minutes or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted. Top with remaining ingredients.

Things I did differently: I added a small chicken breast to the mixture that was chopped finely and cooked. I also cooked the chicken with a bit of diced onion; I did not use green onions. I also added some chopped fresh baby spinach to the mixture. Then baked as directed.

This recipe was good but lacking in bold flavor. Next time I'm going to add some seasonings to it. The dough would also work well for a lot of other fillings, so I might use this idea again to just empty out some leftover stuff from the fridge. By itself it was enough to fill up two adults. :)
