Taco Bell Mexican Pizza

Posted by: ChefTom in Categories: Recipes, Taco Bell.

Whenever I dine at Taco Bell, my go-to dish is the Mexican pizza. Two crisp tortillas filled with seasoned ground beef and topped with cheese and picante salsa.  Homemade is always better though, and with today’s secret recipe you can prepare your own Mexican pizzas at home.  Sometimes I like to make a leaner version by using ground turkey or chicken instead of beef.

To add even more flavor, make your own fresh picante salsa with this easy-to-follow recipe from our forums: Go Here

Taco Bell Mexican Pizza

1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder (Spanish blend is best)
2 tablespoons water
8 small (6-inch diameter) flour tortillas
1 cup Crisco shortening or cooking oil
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
1/3 cup diced tomato
2/3 cup mild picante salsa
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup sliced black olives

Cook the ground beef over medium heat until brown, then drain off the excess fat from the pan. Add salt, onions, paprika, chili powder and water, then let mixture simmer over medium heat for about 10 minutes. Stir often.

Heat oil or Crisco shortening in a frying pan over medium-high heat. If oil begins to smoke, it is too hot. When oil is hot, fry each tortilla for about 30-45 seconds per side and set aside on paper towels. When frying each tortilla, be sure to pop any bubbles that form so that tortilla lays flat in oil. Tortillas should become golden brown.

Heat up refried beans in a small pan over the stove or in the microwave. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. When meat and tortillas are done, stack each pizza by first spreading about 1/3 cup refried beans on the face of one tortilla. Next spread 1/4 to 1/3 cup of meat, then another tortilla.

Coat your pizzas with two tablespoons of salsa on each, then split up the tomatoes and stack them on top. Next divide up the cheese, onions and olives, stacking in that order. Place pizzas in your hot oven for 8-12 minutes or until cheese on top is melted.

Makes 4 pizzas.

Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza

I love getting the Mexican pizza from Taco Bell. The perfect late night snack! It is really easy to prepare this at home and is a great dinner or snack idea to make when you have leftovers from a taco dinner.

1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
2 tablespoons water
8 (6-inch) flour tortillas
1 cup Crisco vegetable shortening
1 (16 oz) can refried beans
2/3 cup mild salsa
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/4 cup diced tomato
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup sliced black olives

In a large skillet, brown the beef over medium heat.   Once cooked, drain the excess fat from the pan. Add salt, onions, paprika, black pepper, chili powder and water, then let the mixture simmer over medium heat for 8-10 minutes. Stir frequently. Heat the Crisco shortening in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. If the oil is smoking, it is too hot. Fry each tortilla for about 45 seconds per side, or until golden brown and let drain on paper towels. Heat up the refried beans in a small saucepan. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
To assemble the pizza, spread about 1/3 cup refried beans on face of one tortilla. Next spread 1/4 of meat, then another tortilla. Coat the tortillas with two tablespoons of salsa, then split up the tomatoes and stack them on top. Next divide up the cheese, onions and olives, stacking in that order. Place pizzas in the oven for about 8 minutes or until cheese on top is melted.
