Mexican Pizza


1/4 pound ground beef
1/2 medium onion, diced
1/2 clove garlic, minced
1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 (16 ounce) can refried beans
2 (10 inch) flour tortillas
1/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 green onions, chopped
1 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeno peppers
2 tablespoons sour cream (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat 2 pie plates with non-stick cooking spray.
Place beef, onion and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until beef is evenly browned. Season the meat with chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.
Lay one tortilla in each pie plate, and cover with a layer of refried beans.
Spread half of the seasoned ground beef over each one, and then cover with a second tortilla. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
Remove the plates from the oven, and let cool slightly.
Spread half of the salsa over each top tortilla.
Cover each pizza with half of the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses.
Place half of the tomatoes, half of the green onions, and half of the jalapeno slices onto each one.
Return the pizzas to the oven, and bake for 5 to 10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, and let cool slightly before slicing each one into 4 pieces.

Pics of what ours looked like,

Ok so this was super yummy and enjoyable. I kept thinking, omg this is just like Taco Bell, just not all fried. However, we did change things up a bit, hopefully not to much.

2 Flour tortillas
1 can refried beans
2 Green onion
10 Cherry tomatoes
1 Can of Olives
1 Can of Enchilata sauce
Cheddar Cheese
Salt and Pepper

Oh, we also wanted it to be vegetarian, because any day I can cut out meat is good for me

Preheat oven to 450,
Doctor up the beans to make them a little spicy use the Cumin,tajine, salt and pepper
spread your beans on one Tortilla shell
Bake for 5 minutes
taking the other tortilla shell, we spooned enchilada sauce on that, and spread the tomatoes, olives, green onions and cheese on it.
We put that on top of the Bean mix, and baked for another 5 minutes, or until cheese was melted.
Eat and Enjoy.

This was very tasty, as i stated above. It made my tummy and brain happy. It was "new" and exciting for us to make.
