Mexican Pizza

Servings – 4 Large or 6 Small Prep Time – 10 Minutes Cook Time – 15 Minutes Ingredients:

  • 1 pound ground beef or turkey (I use turkey)

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 Tablespoon chili powder

  • 2 Tablespoon ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Salt and Pepper

  • 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans, (I use reduced fat)

  • 8 (10 inch) flour tortillas

  • 1 cup salsa

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 2 tomatoes, diced

  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced jalapeño pepper (Optional)

  • 1/2 cup sour cream (Optional)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat 2 pie plates or parchment paper 2 baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray.


Place ground beef or turkey, onion, and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until beef/turkey is evenly browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain and discard grease. Season beef with chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt, and pepper.


Lay one tortilla on baking sheet or in pie plate, and cover with a layer of refried beans. Spread 1/2 of the seasoned ground beef over each one, add shredded cheese (optional) and then cover with a second tortilla. Bake in the preheated oven until tortillas are crisp, about 10 minutes.


Remove pizzas from the oven and set aside to cool slightly. Then spread 1/2 of the salsa over each top tortilla. Cover each pizza with 1/2 of the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Place 1/2 of the tomatoes, 1/2 of the green onions, and 1/2 of the jalapeño slices onto each one.


Return pizzas to the oven and bake until cheese is melted, about 5 to 10 more minutes. Let pizzas cool slightly before slicing each one into 4 pieces.
