  1. Place breads on baking trays and spread with tomato salsa. Top evenly with beans, capsicum and cheese. Sprinkle with chilli powder. 
  2. Bake in a preheated 220°C oven for 10-12 minutes, until bread is crisp and topping is lightly browned.

Tips

  • Check labels on Lebanese bread and choose the brand lowest in sodium.  
  • Replace pinto beans with canned, no added salt red kidney beans or black beans, if preferred. 
  • Remaining canned beans can be frozen in a small container. Add to salads, curries, mince, soups, or use for breakfast in omelets and scrambled eggs.
