Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza

I heart Taco Bell! Authentic Mexican cuisine? Not so much! Delicious and cheap? Yes and yup!
However, our closest one is around ~20+ minutes away. Hardly a quick place to go for supper.

One of my favorite things to get at Taco Bell is their Mexican Pizza. It’s not a true pizza, but rather 2 crispy tortillas filled with beans, meat, sauce, and of course, lots of melty cheese.
Learn how to whip up a Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza that tastes better and is way healthier! It’s also super customizable. Vegetarian? Leave out the meat and use vegetarian refried beans.

Like it hot? Add some hot salsa or jalapeƱos!

If you don’t want to fry your own tortillas try buying pre-made tostada shells from the grocery store.
