Mexican Pizza

This Taco Bell copycat isn’t actually Mexican, nor is it a pizza. It’s actually more of a Tex-Mex quesadilla, and we love it for a lightning fast dinner. The ease of flour tortillas straight from the bag can’t be beat, but if you want to be true to the Taco Bell recipe, shallow fry them in vegetable oil!

1/2
lb.

2
tbsp.

taco seasoning

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

6


medium flour tortillas

1 1/2
c.

1 1/2

Hot sauce, for serving  (such as Cholula)

  1. Preheat oven to 375° and line a medium baking sheet with parchment paper. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef, breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon. Cook until beef is no longer pink, about 6 minutes. Drain fat. Return to heat and add taco seasoning, then season with salt and pepper. Cook 1 minute more, then remove from heat. 
  2. Assemble pizzas: Place 3 tortillas on prepared baking sheet and spread 1/4 cup refried beans on each of them. Divide beef evenly between the tortillas, then top with 1/4 cup cheese each. Top with remaining 3 tortillas. Spread another 1/4 cup of refried beans on each tortilla, then top each with 1/4 cup cheese.
  3. Bake until cheese is melty and beans are warm, 10 to 12 minutes. Garnish with sour cream, tomatoes, olives, and green onions. Serve with hot sauce.
