  • 1 1/2 tablespoons yellow cornmeal, divided
  • 1 (15 ounce) can low-fat turkey chili with beans
  • 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 (10 ounce) can refrigerated pizza crust


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon cornmeal.
  2. Mash chili until beans are almost smooth. Stir in cheese and cilantro.
  3. Unroll and stretch crust into a 12-inch square. Cut into four 6-inch squares.
  4. For each packet, place 1 square on baking sheet and spoon 1/4 chili mixture in center. Fold 2 corners together to form triangle. Press edges together with fork; poke holes in top (to let steam escape).
  5. Sprinkle with remaining cornmeal.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
