Mexican Pizzas

My kids are pretty good eaters, but it isn't often they all get excited over the same meal.  When Mexican Pizzas are on the menu, they all cheer.  Literally.  I even got a happy dance from some of them.  Not only are these Mexican Pizzas tasty, they are done in under 30 minutes.  That makes me do a happy dance!

12 tostada shells
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans or 2 cups homemade (Refried Beans)
1 pound ground beef
1 packet taco seasoning or 1 tablespoon homemade (The Best Homemade Taco Seasoning)
1 cup enchilada sauce
1 large roma tomato, diced
2 stalks green onions, sliced
1 1/2 cup cheese, shredded (I usually use cheddar because that's what I have on hand most often)

Brown ground beef in a large skillet.  Add taco seasoning and water, as directed on the taco seasoning packet.  Warm refried beans either in the microwave or in a pan on the stove (I like to add between 1/4 cup and 1/3 cup water to my beans to make them a nice spreading consistency).  Spread refried beans on 6 of the tostada shells, then sprinkle with ground beef and place on a large baking sheet.  Top each with a remaining tostada shells.  Spread enchilada sauce on top of the top tostada shells and then sprinkle with cheese.  Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes to melt the cheese.  Sprinkle each pizza with diced tomato and sliced green onions.

  1. These look so yummy! I love the ones from Taco Bell and these are so much healthier (and cheaper!). Definitely making soon!

  2. Add some nacho cheese sauce & I think these are just like my favorite crunch wrap supremes from Taco Bell! Yummy! Thanks for sharing at Sweet & Savory Saturdays #15.
