What’s Cookin’ – Mexican Pizza

Okay, now that I bared my soul regarding my love of cheap, greasy tacos (here), I thought I would share a recipe for Mexican Pizza which is basically a flat, crispy taco.  Now, Taco Bell has a Mexican Pizza that I like, but a local Mexican restaurant used to have one on their appetizer menu that I loved.  They no longer offer it, but I have the recipe that was published in our local newspaper a number of years ago.

You will need ground beef, taco seasoning, flour tortillas, pizza sauce, black beans, cheddar cheese, Monterey jack cheese, tomatoes, black olives, and green onions.

Brown 1 pound of ground beef, drain grease, add taco seasoning and water and continue to cook until the mixture is thick and not at all watery.

Prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Here is the finished product.  Yummy!

Note:  Now I ended up with 5 people for dinner so I just added another tortilla and divided everything 5 ways rather than 4 ways and it was still all good!

Here is Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza.  In the interest of research, I went and purchased one.  Then I ate it.  I love the double layer of tortillas that are really crispy.  If I can figure out how to replicate this piece, I think I can amp up the add ins.  Stay tuned!
