for the baked tortillas

  • 8 wheat corn tortillas 2 tortillas per pizza, I like Trader Joe's organic brand
  • avocado oil to brush both sides of tortilla

for the beans

  • 1 15 ounce can organic pinto refried beans salsa style I like Trader Joe's
  • 1 1/2 tbsp taco seasoning I like Trader Joe's
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white onion chopped

for the veggies, cheese, salsa (divided in 4 servings)

  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1 jalapeno deseeded & chopped
  • 2 stalks scallions chopped
  • 1 1/3 cup mexican cheese shredded
  • few spoonfuls salsa or taco bell sauce

Instructions
 

Bake the Tortillas

  • Preheat the oven at 400 degrees. Line a tray with foil.
  • Place 2 tortillas on a flat surface and lightly brush both sides of the tortilla with avocado oil.
  • Once preheated, put the tray in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes total, 5 minutes on each side so flip halfway. You can add multiple tortillas at a time.
  • Tortillas are done.

Make the Beans & Chop Veggies

  • In the meantime, make the beans. Empty the contents of the refried beans into a pot and cook on medium heat.
  • Add 1/4 cup of water and taco seasoning. Do not add salt since the taco seasoning has enough salt.
  • In the meantime, chop an onion. Add the onion to the beans. Once heated through, turn off the stove.
  • Chop the tomatoes, scallions, and jalapeno. Set cheese aside.

Assemble Mexican Pizza

  • Spread a couple of dollops of beans over the tortilla.
  • Top off with a little salsa and spread. Use your favorite salsa, or even Taco Bell sauce will work.
  • Place the second piece of tortilla on top.
  • Now top with salsa again. Spread.
  • Top with scallions, tomatoes, and jalapeno.
  • Top with cheese, make sure you get the sides.
  • Place the Mexican Tortilla Pizza back on the foiled tray and into the oven at 400 degrees for about 5 minutes. Check after 3 minutes.
  • Mexican Pizza is ready. Cut into 4 pieces and serve hot with Taco Bell sauce. You can also garnish with onions, cilantro, or sour cream.
