Ingredients

  • 12 6 in corn tortillas
  • 1 lb ground beef or chicken, pork or turkey
  • 16 oz refried beans
  • 2-3 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder can substitute 2 cloves fresh garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes chopped
  • 3 scallions chopped
  • 2 jalapeños seeded and chopped
  • 8 oz sour cream
  • 1 package cheddar cheese shredded
  • salt to taste
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 2 cups lettuce shredded

Instructions

Beef

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees (175 degrees C)
  • In a large skillet brown the ground beef over medium heat.  Break beef apart with a spoon or spatula as it's cooking.  
  • Add chili powder, garlic powder, salt and jalapenos.  Stir.  
  • Cook for another few minutes and set aside. 

Refried Beans

  • Heat the refried beans in saucepan or microwave and stir several times while heating. Heating allows for easier spreading on tortillas.

Corn Tortillas

  • In a large skillet add the oil and heat over medium heat. 
  • Cook corn tortillas until they are slightly brown on both sides. About 10 seconds on each side.  Drain on paper towels. 

Assembly

  • Spread out 4 tortillas on a cookie sheet.
  • Spread refried beans on each tortilla to cover.  Place a second layer of tortilla on top of each.
  • Add ground beef and cheese on each second layer. 
  • Top each one once again with another tortilla. 
  • Sprinkle with more cheese and bake for 15 minutes in oven at 350 degrees (175 degrees C).
  • When the pizzas are done, cut each pizza into wedges or quarters. 
  • Garnish with lettuce, tomatoes, scallions, avocado, chopped cilantro and sour cream.  Top with black beans and black olives if using.  Place on a platter and serve warm.  Enjoy!
