Over the holiday weekend my parents came to visit for five days! It was wonderful! Usually we eat out like crazy because 1. the restaurants in our neighborhood are to die for, and 2. it’s easy. But this time we decided to cook at home using a bunch of Pinterest rechipes I’ve been dying to try. We attempted five different recipes, and these Mini Mexican Pizzas were by far the overall favorite. They were just too good not to share with you!
You will need:
bag of flour tortillas
1/2 cup refried beans
1/2 cup salsa
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup ground beef
2 tsp dry taco seasoning
black olives [optional
sour cream [optional]
Preheat oven to 450F, spray your muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray
Use something to cut circles into your tortillas to make them about 5″ in diameter. I used a measuring cup and “cookie-cuttered” the circles out.
Press each tortilla into your muffin tin cubbies to make mini tortilla bowls.
In a small bowl mix together your ground meat, salsa, refried beans, and taco seasoning.
Scoop small spoonfuls of your meat mixture into each tortilla bowl. Don’t overdo it though because you want room for your garnishes.
Top each bowl with some shredded cheddar cheese and black olives.
Place muffin tin in oven and bake for 12-15min, until the cheese has melted.
Remove your mini pizzas and let cool. Then top with your favorite garnishes [sour cream, lettuce, tomato, guacamole, salsa, etc.]
And yes, it really is that easy. And in 20 minutes you will have a new favorite snack. My dad literally ate 90% of the double batch I made. Needless to say they were a hit! They’re perfect for that next summer party you have planned and are so easy to pass around on little trays as appetizers! Yummmm
