These Mexican Pizzas are even BETTER (and healthier) than the ones you love from Taco Bell! They’re made with ground beef, refried beans, and cheese baked inside corn tortillas.

While Mexican Pizzas is definitely Americanized Mexican food, if you’re looking for authentic Mexican food check out my Authentic Mexican Rice, Homemade Tamales or Tres Leches Cake!

Mexican Pizza

Who loves Mexican Pizzas from Taco Bell? Well, you’re in for a treat because I stole that idea but made it way BETTER! These homemade Mexican Pizzas are delicious and one of those meals that everyone can agree on. My kids love to build their own, which makes the process even easier for me, and I love cooking with them!

Ingredients in Mexican Pizza:

  • ground beef
  • packet of taco seasoning (or homemade)
  • water
  • oil
  • corn tortillas
  • refried beans
  • red enchilada sauce
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • roma tomato
  • sliced olives
  • green onions

How to make Mexican Pizza:

  • Cook ground beef. Add taco seasoning and water and stir to combine.
  • Cook corn tortillas. Lightly pan fry them in a little bit of oil.
  • Assemble. Spoon a thin layer of enchilada sauce on top of one corn tortilla, spread refried beans on and top with a spoonful of taco meat.  Sprinkle cheese over the meat and place a second corn tortilla on top.
  • Top with enchilada sauce.  Spread thin layer of enchilada sauce on top of the tortilla and sprinkle with more cheese.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 10 minutes, until cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Garnish with olives, tomatoes, green onion and sour cream. Cut into wedges to serve.

I think they taste best warm from the oven, but feel free to store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to a week. You can reheat them in the oven, in a skillet on the stove, or in the microwave.
