Mexican Pizza


This is the homemade version of Taco John's Mexican Pizza. Only way better and no mystery meat!

Ingredients:
1 (16 oz.) can refried beans
1 lb. ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
1 tsp. olive oil (vegetable oil is ok too)
4 (6 inch) corn tortillas
8 oz. shredded medium cheddar cheese
Heat refried beans.

In large skillet, brown ground beef. Stir in taco seasoning.

Preheat oven to 350

Grab another large skillet and add olive oil. Let the oil heat, place one tortilla in the skillet and heat 15 seconds. Flip and heat other side 15 seconds. Repeat this with all 4 tortillas, removing them and draining them on paper towels.

After draining place one tortilla on a cookie sheet. Layer like this: tortilla, thin layer of beans, beef, cheese. Repeat layers using all 4 tortillas with last layer being a tortilla. 

Bake 10-15 minutes. Remove from oven, add cheese to top making an even coat. Bake an additional 5 minutes or until cheese on top is melted.

Garnish with lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes (or any of your favorite toppings). 

Slice into wedges (pizza cutter works great)

*Variations: 
Add hot sauce when browning beef. (to your taste)
Instead of making layers using all 4 tortillas, make 2 separate pizzas. Bake for 10 minutes per pizza or until filling cheese is melted.
