Mexican Pizza

Makes 4 servings Start to Finish: 30 minutes

“One of my favorite guilty pleasures is Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza.  I’ve often thought about replicating this recipe and finally decided to try it.  Yay!”

12 small flour tortillas

Vegetable oil

1 lb ground beef

1 can refried beans

1 cup salsa

2 cups sharp cheddar cheese – shredded

Sour cream – for garnish

1)  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2)  Lightly brush flour tortillas on both sides with vegetable oil.  Place oiled tortillas on a large baking dish (you might have to do it in batches.)  Bake tortillas for 6 minutes on each side.  Remove from oven.

3)  Brown and drain ground beef.  Add beans and salsa.  Mix well and cook for an additional 5 minutes until heated through.

4)  Sandwich ground beef mixture evenly between 6 pairs of baked tortillas.  Sprinkle cheese evenly over tops of sandwiched tortillas and return to oven for 3 – 5 minutes to melt cheese.  Serve topped with sour cream.

*You can easily and deliciously turn this into a vegetarian dish by removing the beef and doubling up on the refried beans.*
