Ingredients

  • 4 10 inch flour tortillas
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • dash cayenne powder
  • 1 16 ounce can refried beans
  • ½ cup salsa
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 8 grape tomatoes diced
  • ¼ cup finely chopped jalapeno peppers
  • ¼ cup sour cream optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment, Silpat, or foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place the tortillas on the pan and bake them for 3-5 minutes or until lightly crisped, flip over and bake for an additional 3-5 minutes until both sides are lightly crisped. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium-high heat until beef is browned and onion is tender. Drain grease. Stir in chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
  • Place two of the prepared tortillas side by side on baking sheet, and cover with a layer of refried beans. Scatter half of the seasoned ground beef over each tortilla, and then cover with a second tortilla.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  • Spread salsa on top of each top tortilla stack. Top with cheeses, tomatoes, green onions, and jalapenos.
  • Return the pizzas to the oven, and bake for 5 to 10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, and let cool slightly before slicing each one into 4 pieces.
