1 lb. lean ground beef
taco seasoning packet + the water it requires
1 can refried beans
1 Tbsp. taco seasoning
crisp tortilla shells (we used the Azteca brand found in the refrigerated section at Walmart)
taco sauce or enchilada sauce
toppings of choice like sliced olives, sour cream, shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, etc.
Start by preparing the ground beef. Brown and crumble the ground beef, once browned add the taco seasoning packet plus the water it requires and finish according to packet directions. Next make the refried beans. In a sauce pot add beans and 1 Tbsp. of taco seasoning and mix well. Heat over medium heat until hot. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lay tortilla shells on a pan sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 4-5 minutes per side or until golden brown. Now assemble the pizzas. On top of one shell spread a layer of refried beans, then top with some seasoned ground beef. Place another tortilla shell on top. Pour some taco sauce (or enchilada sauce) on top of the shell and then sprinkle on some shredded cheese. Place the mexican pizza back on the baking sheet and return to hot oven and bake until cheese is melted. Top with any desired toppings and serve hot. Enjoy!
