It’s another Mexican Monday and today my suggestion is to try these “Taco Bell Mexican Pizzas”. I do not frequent the local Taco Bell, so I can only trust the source I got the recipe from that they are indeed “Taco Bell Mexican Pizzas”. Either way, they’re delicious and a simple week night dinner – I opted to add ground beef to the pizzas, but you could omit the meat and keep them vegetarian. Don’t be deceived, these tortilla sized pizzas are surprisingly satisfying.
- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 1/8 C taco seasoning or 1/2 pkt
- 1/4 C water
- 4 wheat tortillas
- 1 C refried beans
- 1/3 C enchilada sauce
- 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
- 1/2 small red onion, diced finely
- 2/3 C shredded Mexican cheese
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- In a medium, non-stick skillet brown ground beef over medium-high heat. Stir in taco seasoning and water according to taco seasoning directions. *If making your own taco seasoning, use 1/4 C water and 1/8 C seasoning for the 1/2 lb of meat.
- Crisp up tortillas in a skillet sprayed with cooking spray, flipping often.
- Heat the refried beans (the microwave will work just fine) until they’re warm and easier to spread. Spread over two of the crispy tortillas.
- Top each tortilla with the remaining two tortillas. And spread the enchilada sauce over top. Pile on meat and veggies. Cover with cheese.
- Bake 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
