Super Easy Mexican Pizza

I was super excited to try this recipe for Mexican Pizza that I adapted from Honey What’s Cooking? This is one of Trent’s favorites when we eat at Taco Bell. I figured I could make it a lot cheaper than the over $3 they ask for it!

The only thing Trent didn’t like about this recipe was the wheat tortillas (I got a great deal on them a bit ago and tried to “cover them up” with this recipe. Needless to say, it didn’t work. ) Other than that, he really liked them so I’ll be making them again, with flour tortillas!

 Mexican Pizza

  • 4 Burrito-size tortillas
  • Oil
  • Refried Beans (I used homemade refried beans)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 lb Ground Turkey
  • Small Onion, diced (optional)
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. Black Pepper (0ptional)
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Salsa
  • Shredded Cheese

1. Lightly brush (spoon) both sides of tortillas with oil. Bake at 400 for 3-5 minutes per side.

2. Brown the ground beef. Add taco seasoning.

3. Mix together water, refried beans, chopped onion, paprika and pepper. (Since I used my homemade refried beans I didn’t add anything else to them.)

4. Layer tortilla, refried beans, meat mixture, tortilla, salsa, cheese.

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

You can also add jalapeno peppers or scallions to the top layer, or add a dollop of sour cream if you’d like.
