Yea! A 5 ★ recipe! We have been having some real stinkers lately. This was very simple and delicious. The 2 pans fed our family, but a third pan would not have hurt. I followed the directions completely, the only change was to make 1 pan with a chunky salsa and jalapeño and the other pan with regular salsa and no peppers.
- ½ lb. ground beef
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- ½ tsp paprika
- ½ tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
- 4 (10 inch) flour tortillas
- ½ cup salsa
- 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
- ¼ cup finely chopped jalapeno peppers
- ¼ cup sour cream (optional)
|Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Coat 2 pie plates with non-stick cooking spray.
|Place beef, onion and garlic in a skillet over medium heat. Cook until beef is evenly browned. Drain off grease. Season the meat with chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.
|Lay one tortilla in each pie plate, and cover with a layer of refried beans. Spread half of the seasoned ground beef over each one, and then cover with a second tortilla. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
|Remove the plates from the oven, and let cool slightly. Spread half of the salsa over each top tortilla. Cover each pizza with half of the Cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Place half of the tomatoes, half of the green onions, and half of the jalapeno slices onto each one.
|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.
