Mexican Pizza

If you've ever had a Mexican Pizza from Taco Bell and LOVED it, you're gonna want to try this recipe. It's a compilation of several recipes I found on Pinterest. I'll have to figure out which ones I used and link them back here so that you can see the "original" recipes. :) 

Better than Taco Bell Mexican Pizza

8 taco sized flour tortillas
Pam cooking spray or canola oil
1 14oz can refried beans
1 lb ground beef
1/2 pkg taco seasoning (or homemade)
Taco Bell mild sauce (or any strength you prefer.. I found it in a bottle at Walmart)
picante sauce or salsa
2 c shredded cheddar cheese (more or less)
1 chopped tomato
1 chopped green onion

Heat oven to 400* and line a baking sheet with foil. Use a fork to poke a few holes in each tortilla so that they don't puff up too much while baking. Lightly spray (or brush) tortillas with Pam or oil and bake (only two at a time fit on my sheet) 6 minutes per side, until golden brown and crunchy. If they puff up just smash them down with a spatula. Set aside to cool and repeat with other tortillas.

Brown ground beef, drain, and season with taco seasoning and a little water. You could also follow the instructions on the taco seasoning package but I don't bother with that. Set aside and keep warm.

Warm refried beans so that they spread easily. Spread a big spoonful of beans on one tortilla, scoop 1/4 of the meat on top and spread it out too. Next, top it with another baked tortilla. Gently press it down. 

Spread a big tablespoon of picante sauce on the top tortilla, pour on some Taco Bell sauce and spread it out to the edge. Toss on some diced tomato. Top with a big handful of shredded cheddar cheese and a little chopped green onion.

Heat under the broiler to melt the cheese, cut into fourths, and ENJOY! This recipe makes 4 Mexican Pizzas.
