Taco Bell Mexican Pizza Recipe



Our mouth-watering Taco Bell Mexican Pizza is everything you love about Mexican food combined with the delicacy of pizza. This masterpiece is made with crispy tortillas, seasoned beef, refried beans, melted cheese, and vegetables for the ultimate pizza experience.



It's been sad news for us fans of Mexican pizza since the pandemic hit, and Taco bell stopped making it in their restaurants. Although Taco Bell has been bringing back Mexican pizza for a limited time, they have not been able to keep up with demand. Unfortunately, in my area, they never got it back after the pandemic. According to their website, they are working to bring it back to restaurants, but there is no specific information on when this might happen.

Lucky for you, you can use my recipe to make your own, and with these unique tips and tricks, it will be as good or better than Taco Bell's.


INGREDIENTS NEEDED

Ground beef

Taco seasoning (or MAKE YOUR OWN!)

Water

Refried beans

Enchilada sauce

Shredded Mexican cheese blend

Flour tortillas

Vegetable oil


Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400F. In a large skillet, brown and crumble the ground beef.



Drain excess fat. Return the cooked meat to the skillet, add the taco toppings packet and water, and mix. Add in your scallion and season with garlic powder, onion powder, and ground red pepper if you want an added spice. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer until thickened.



In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add tortillas (one at a time) and cook for 15-30 seconds, turning often) until crispy. Continue with the rest of the tortillas.



Meanwhile, heat the refried beans in a microwave-safe bowl or small pot


This process will make it easier to spread the beans over the tortillas.


 

Assemble pizzas:


On each tortilla, spread a generous layer of refried beans. Then top with seasoned ground beef.


Place another tortilla on top. Spread about two tablespoons of enchilada sauce on top.



Then put grated cheese on the sauce. Finally, continue assembling the rest of the pizzas.




Arrange the pizzas on a large nonstick skillet and cook until the cheese is melted about 8 to 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite toppings!


Variations


How to make them healthier? These things are more beneficial if you add more nutritious stuff like tomatoes and olives and limit the unhealthier things like cheese and beans. But keep in mind that this won't help it taste super good. You can also use corn tortillas instead of flour, as corn tortillas are slightly healthier.


Other types of meat?


We used ground meat in this recipe, and you can use ground turkey or pan-fried ground chicken nuggets. Whatever meat or even a meat substitute you decide to use, we suggest you continue to use a little taco seasoning.

Variants? If you wish, you can change several things in this recipe:


Garnish with Jalapeños


Season the meat with the various toppings of your choice

Make your refried beans creamy or spicy

Sprinkle with hot sauce and sour cream!


STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Keep any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 2 days.


IN THE FREEZER: Store leftover pizza in the freezer in an airtight container, separated by layers of wax paper, for up to two months.
