My oldest son, Tyler has decided to start making some of the meals and has graciously offered to allow me to blog his meals as well. Tonight he begins his journey with Mexican Pizzas and boy, they are DELICIOUS!!!!
Tyler’s Mexican Pizzas
- 12 Tortilla shells
- 1 lb Ground beef
- 1 med Onion, diced
- 1 can Refried Beans
- 2 TBS Taco seasoning
- 12-16 oz Shredded cheddar
- 1-1 1/2 cups Taco Sauce
Fry onion & beef together in a skillet, drain. Add refried beans and taco seasoning and simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes. In a skillet, fry your tortilla shells in oil on med-hi heat, flipping to cook evenly on both sides until golden in color (about 30 seconds each side). Tyler used Avocado oil for frying pouring enough in to put about 1/4 inch in skillet.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lay 6 fried tortillas out on a cookie sheet (we were working with a small cookie sheet, so only two fit at a time) then spread 1/6 of meat mixture onto them. Top meat mixture with another fried tortilla and top that with about a spoonful of the taco sauce and a handful of cheddar cheese.
Bake in oven until cheese is melted, approximately 3-5 min. We topped ours with lettuce, tomato, black olives and Greek yogurt.
