Mexican Pizza

Skip the restaurant version and make this take-out favorite at home!

Mexican Pizza

Raise your hand if you like Taco Bell.  Be honest.

Don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone. Your secret is safe with me.

It’s OK to like fast food around here. Here’s a shock: I like Taco Bell. Well, actually, love it. 

It’s taken a lot of will power, but, I’ve cut back. It’s filled with junk and the price of fast food? Forget about it. Too much!

The next best thing is to just make it at home, right? 😉

This tastes the same as a Mexican Pizza at Taco Bell.

Here is our breakdown:

  • Ground beef or ground turkey will work for these. If you use ground beef, go with lean version.
  • Season the meat with taco seasoning. Click the link in the recipe card for a homemade version or the packaged envelope works fine too.
  • Your pizza layers: tortilla-refried beans-meat-tortilla The below recipe is just a rough guide to the amounts for your pizza. Feel free to add/subtract ingredients to your taste preference.

The next time you decide to make a run for the border, give this Mexican Pizza a try instead!

    Great recipe! I have an autistic son who has some odd ideas about food that are seemingly unchangeable, like he won’t eat meatloaf (though he’ll eat basically the same mixture as meatballs in tomato sauce on spaghetti), but my husband and I crave meatloaf occasionally, so when I did make it for us, I fixed this pizza for him and he loved it! I really like the fact that you can make just one or several…he ate a whole one by himself, but I plan on making them for all of us soon!

    The 2 of us like different ways. My wife likes mild salsa, I like hot salsa. We also use chives instead of green onions and no olives. Has now been a staple whenever the mood dictates.

    Stopping by from All My Bloggy Friends. Ok. So I don't like Taco Bell. It may be my least favorite fast food joint. BUT. Their Mexican Pizza is the one thing on the menu I like. And I like it quite bit. This looks so good!

  8. Grandma Kc says:

    WHY would you only make one?? They sound wonderful. I, too love Taco Bell but due to budgets don't go often.

    • erin says:

      Well, I did make a couple more throughout the week, they are so tasty 😉
      I agree with you about Taco's a bit of the hit in the budget.
      Thanks for visiting Grandma KC!
