How to make a Mexican Pizza like TacoBell. Taco Bell sauce, taco meat, beans and a fried flour tortilla tostada.


For taco bell sauce
Tomato sauce 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Water 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Chili powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground cumin 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Black pepper 3/4 Teaspoon
Onion powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Minced garlic 1 Teaspoon
Cider vinegar 1 Tablespoon
For pizzas
Flour tortillas 8
Oil 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) (for deep frying)
Refried beans 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Beef filling 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Cheese 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Green onions 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Tomatoes 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Sour cream 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)



In a small pot, combine all sauce ingredients and bring to simmer. Simmer 10-15 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet pour the oil. Begin heating it to 300ºF.

Stack the tortillas on a cutting board and use the tip of a knife to make 8-10 small slits in the tortillas.

Deep-fry the tortillas for 30 seconds on each side until golden. Drain on paper.

Lay 4 out on a baking sheet. Spread each with a couple tablespoons of refried beans, taco meat followed by taco sauce and cheese. Top with another shell. Spoon 2-3 more tablespoons of sauce and cheese on top.

Broil on low heat for just a few seconds until the cheese is melted.

Sprinkle with tomatoes, green onion, and a top with sour cream.



Serve right away.
