Mexican Pizza

Growing up I always loved Taco Bell, it is just so good! Even if you know it is so bad for you!! Well, we have a solution! Make your favorite taco bell dishes at home with fewer ingredients and better meat!

1 lb ground beef
1 pkg beef seasoning
1 can fat free pinto beans
4 tortilla shells
2 cups shredded cheese
1/2 cup salsa
1 tomato, chopped
1 small can sliced olives
Taco sauce
Sour cream

Turn your broiler on.
Brown your beef and cook according to seasoning package. Make sure you break up the beef into small pieces for it to spread easily. While you are browning your meat, place your beans in a sauce pan to warm. Add 1/4 cup water to beans while cooking. Stir until well incorporated, cooking until warm. We need the beans a little loose to spread better.

Brush your tortilla shells with a little oil and broil for 3-4 minutes until crunch. It is okay if they bubble up a little.

Once your shells and meat are all ready we can assemble!

Place a shell on a baking sheet, top with beef and 3 table spoons of salsa. Sprinkle cheese over top of beef. Take the other taco shell and spread beans on the under side. Place the bean side down on the cheese and meat. Spread more salsa on top of 2nd shell. Sprinkle with cheese. Place back in broiler for a few minutes until cheese is melted. Chop up some tomatoes and olives to place on top! I like taco sauce and sour cream on mine. Great with guacamole too! Enjoy!
