I still have a bunch of tomatoes and some gorgeous lettuce from my CSA box last week. I think I’m over the salad for a little while and wanted to try something slightly different.
I didn’t want tacos per se, yet I was still craving mexican. I decided to try my hand at making a mexican pizza. It was easy, it was delicious, it is a must try.
I decided to dice up the smaller tomatoes and chiffonade the lettuce. I think it came out beautifully. I almost didn’t want to cut into it.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 packet of taco seasoning
- 3/4 C water
- 1 can of refried beans, heated
- Taco style shredded cheese
- Toppings of your liking (I used the lettuce and tomatoes from my CSA box, sour cream, green onion and hot sauce..oh yeah!)
In a large skillet place a tortilla into the heated oil. Cook on one side for a minute, flip over and cook the other side for a minute. (you will see it bubble up, take a fork and let the air loose).
In another skillet, brown the ground beef then drain. Add taco seasoning and water and let cook until thick
Preheat oven to 375
Place crisped tortillas onto a baking sheet that has been lightly greased. Spread a layer of refried beans on the tortilla, then a layer of beef, then a nice bit layer of taco cheese. Heat in oven until the cheese is nice and gooey.
Take out and put on a plate. Top with toppings of choice. Cut into triangles with a pizza cutter. Put on the fat pants (this is filling!) and enjoy!
