This is kid-friendly and adult-favorite at the same time. I mean, pizza is all-age favorite food and when you add the Mexican twist in it, it becomes even more appealing and palate pleasing. Mexico is so popular for the food and people. I have been to the country a few times. I absolutely loved there. The fresh sea breeze, the scenery and to top it all off, the trees full of mangoes, pomegranates and papayas! Every where you go, you will find this soothing and homey appeal. So, pack your bags. Let's go on a vacation to Mexico, once again!
3 large sized tortillas(12")
1 can of refried beans, mashed
1 cup ground beef(replace this with 1 cup of Nutrela granules)
1 pack Taco seasoning
1 cup store bought salsa
1/2 onion, finely chopped
2-3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 tsp dry oregano
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
A few slices of pickled jalapenos
Sour cream and salsa to garnish, optional
Brown the beef, drain. Add taco seasoning, 2 tbsp of water and cook on medium heat till beef is done.
In another sauce pot, sauté onion and garlic. Add mashed refried beans and dry oregano, heat up thoroughly.
Brush the tortillas with oil.
In a skillet, toast the tortillas one by one till crispy.
Place one tortilla on a pizza pan.
Top it with the beans and cheese.
Place another tortilla on it and spread ground beef mixture and cheese.
Top this off with the third tortilla and spread salsa and remaining cheese on the top.
Dot with pickled jalapenos.
Bake in 375° oven till cheese is melted and the the tortillas edges are nice, golden brown.
Sllice and serve.
