“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
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.*
