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.
