Main Dish, Vegetarian

mexican pizza

I love Mexican food. Seriously, my love of black beans is borderline obsessive. I usually end up making one Mexican dish a week for supper. When we first were married, it seemed to always be tacos. Which are fine. Until they wore out their welcome and we demanded a change of pace. So then I made quesadillas. And then a really yummy Mexican casserole. And enchiladas. And today, Mexican pizza. Sometimes all of these are actually the same ingredients in a different form. If you are stuck in a rut with your beans and tortillas, I hope you try these!

what you’ll need:

  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 can refried beans
  • 1 package taco seasoning
  • 2 6-inch tortillas per serving
  • optional toppings of your choice:
    • taco sauce
    • spicy ranch
    • sour cream
    • shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    • shredded lettuce
    • chopped tomatoes
    • cilantro
    • queso dip
    • corn

how you’ll do it:

place tortillas on a cookie sheet and leave in oven while it preheats to 350*
while oven is preheating, brown meat. then add taco seasoning and water and let simmer
when oven is preheated and tortillas are crunchy, remove from oven
they should be lightly brown on edges
spread refried beans on one tortilla
layer on the meat and top with other tortilla
bake for 8-10 minutes. remove from oven and add all of your toppings. YUM!
Seriously, these were so good! They are a new favorite of ours, and I will definitely be making them again!
**To make vegetarian, don’t add the taco meat, and use more beans 🙂
