A friend gave me this recipe and it was an immediate hit with our family and friends. Adapted from www.TopSecretRecipes.com
- 226.79 g ground beef
- 2.46 ml salt
- 1.23 ml diced minced onion
- 1.23 ml paprika
- 7.39 ml chili powder (Spanish is best)
- 29.58 ml water
- 8 (48 inch) flour tortillas
- 236.59 ml cooking oil
- 453.59 g can refried beans
- 78.07 ml diced tomato
- 158.51 ml mild picante sauce
- 236.59 ml shredded cheddar cheese
- 236.59 ml shredded monterey jack cheese
- 59.14 ml chopped green onion
- 59.14 ml sliced black olives
- Cook the ground beef over medium heat until brown, then drain.
- Return meat to pan and add the salt, onions, paprika, chili powder and water.
- Let mixture simmer over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring often.
- Heat oil in frying pan over medium-high heat.
- When oil is hot, fry each tortilla for about 30-45 seconds per side and drain on paper towels.
- Be sure to pop any bubbles that form when frying so that the tortilla lays flat in the oil.
- Tortillas should become golden brown.
- Heat refried beans.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
- Stack each pizza by first spreading 1/3 C beans on one tortilla.
- Next add 1/3 C meat, then another tortilla.
- Top the second tortilla with 2 T of salsa.
- Divide the tomato, cheese, onions and olives evenly and top in that order.
- Bake for 8-12 minutes.
I took the others advice since i do like a spicier meat and used a taco seasoning mix and it was great! I make a similiar recipe without the baking that i am posting.
I love these! I used my recipe for Taco Meat (which is a copycat for Taco Bell's beef) - if has a fine texture, and works well. Thanks for posting this!
Yummy!!! I substituted Taco Seasoning mix instead of the individual ingredients and added sour cream on top after it came out of the oven, but it was definitely home-made heavenly!
