For this recipe I used the Old El Paso 6-inch flour tortillas, black bean refried beans, and salsa. I used mild salsa for these since my kids don’t love things super spicy, but you could definitely use a medium or hot, depending on your preference.

Mexican Pizza

Yield: 5 to 7 servings

Prep Time: 5 to 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 to 7 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 10 (6-inch) Old El Paso flour tortillas
  •  1 (16-ounce) can black bean refried beans
  • 1 teaspoon taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup salsa, more if needed
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked meat (I used shredded rotisserie chicken)
  • Optional toppings: tomatoes, sliced olives, diced avocado, sour cream, chopped cilantro

 

Directions:

Pre-heat the oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil or use a pizza pan. Place the tortillas on the pan and warm them in the oven for 3 minutes.

While the tortillas are cooking, heat the beans in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in 3 Tablespoons of salsa, taco seasoning and salt. Add more salt and pepper to taste.

Remove tortillas from the oven and spread the beans onto the top side of 5 tortillas. Sprinkle with cheese, add meat if desired and then top with another tortilla. Spread salsa on top of the tortilla and then add cheese. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Top with fresh ingredients such as tomatoes, sliced olives, diced avocado, sour cream, chopped cilantro and then cut into 4 slices.

You can make these without meat, or use taco meat to mix it up.
