Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the refried beans.

    Advertisement
  • In a large skillet, brown the ground beef. Stir in the seasoning packet.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Place a small amount of vegetable oil in a large skillet. Let the oil heat, then place one corn tortilla in the skillet. After 15 seconds, flip the tortilla over and let it fry another 15 seconds. Repeat this process with the remaining tortillas, letting them drain on paper towels once they have been heated. When the tortillas have drained, arrange them on a cookie sheet.

  • Spread a thin layer of beans on the tortillas, followed by a layer of beef, and cheese.

  • Bake the tortillas in the preheated oven for 20 to 30 minutes. Slice the tortillas into wedges and arrange them on plates or a serving platter and garnish them with the sour cream, tomatoes, green onions, chiles, avocado, and olives.

Excellent. I baked the tortillas flat in the oven at 375 for 12 minutes instead of deep frying. Then I added the beans and beef to one tortilla, topped with another and added cheese and salsa and other toppings to the top tortilla. Read More

If you bake this as long as stated in recipe you'll end up with ruined cheese. Bake just until cheese melts doesn't take long. I make these using a low carb flour tortilla. I'm diabetic and these are great for me. I can enjoy pizza. One day I wanted pizza and thought what can I do so that's what I came up with. Now I see there is a recipe on All recipes for the same thing. Nothing new under the sun is there? Read More

This was great. The only thing I changed was I wanted more Taco Bell like Mexican Pizzas, so I spread the beans on the tortilla, topped that with meat, then addd another tortilla and covered that with cheese and baked for 10 minutes. Then I topped them with sour cream, salsa, and jalapeno peppers. Great recipe even without the changes though :) Thanks Read More

Way better than the Taco Bells Mexican Pizza! I used 8 tortillas instead. I put the beans, meat, cheese, and more beans in between two tortillas, then baked them for about 12 minutes, then added cheese atop of that and baked for another 5 minutes, just until the cheese on top of the top tortilla is melted. Then, I put the tomatoes, olives, Jalepenos(instead of the can of green chiles), sour cream, and green onoins on top. It was very very good. Read More

This was great. I topped it w/ another tortilla as someone suggested. I left this in for 20 minutes. A few minutes before done sprinkle cheese on top of 2nd tortilla. Take out and top w/ whatever you want. Definitely cut into wedges a lot easier to eat. Read More

We liked it so much we ate it 3 nights in a row! I did use ground turkey (7% fat) and followed the suggestion to bake the tortillas. I just baked them with the beans, ground turkey and cheese on them. We also added lettuce since we don't care for olives... Read More

EASY & FUN TO MAKE Always a great answer to "what do I do with the leftover tortillas?". You can make this even easier and faster by using canned black or pinto beans...ground up if you wish. Just BE SURE to drain out the juice that comes in the can. I sometimes use salsa & cheese sauce instead of tomatoes & grated cheese. It depends on what I have on hand and want to use up! Read More
