Mexican Pizza

This was so good and hit the spot for a taco bell craving!!


(For the meat)

½ pound ground beef

⅛ cup oats (I used quinoa flakes)

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

3 tablespoons chili powder

1 tablespoon smoked paprika

1 tablespoon cocoa powder

1 cup water

2 tablespoons cornstarch

Note- I actually used a taco seasoning packet instead of individual spices because I was feeling lazy.

(For the sauce)

1 10-ounce can of red enchilada sauce

1 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

For the rest)

2 tortilla shells (I used hard corn tostadas)

1 16-ounce can of refried beans

½ tomato, diced

¼ cup mozzarella cheese

¼ cup cheddar cheese

1/4 cup pepper jack cheese


Cook the can of refried beans, according to label's instructions, set aside.
Combine all meat ingredients except cornstarch in a pan on medium-low heat.

Cook for 2-3 minutes, until done, then add cornstarch.

As it begins to bubble, reduce to simmer, and cook for two minutes until thickened, set aside.

In a separate pan, combine sauce ingredients. Cook at medium-low until heated thoroughly. Set aside.

Cook one tortilla shell in a pan at medium low for three minutes, set cooked shell aside. Repeat with second shell.

Spread refried beans on the second cooked shell while it's still in the pan.

Add one tablespoon of meat to the beans and spread evenly.

Place the first cooked shell on top of meat and bean mixture.

Spread the sauce on top of the top shell,almost to the edges.

Top with the cheese mix, followed by diced tomatoes.

Cover with a wet lid for about three minutes, until cheese is melted.

Cut into quarters, and serve. Enjoy!
