Mexican Pizza

Swap out the ground beef for shredded chicken, pulled pork carnitas or just use a bunch of your favorite veggies for a meat-less option. These pizzas are a nice change to your usual taco and feel free to pile high the toppings, with no worries of the shell breaking in your hands.


Recipe yields 4-5 servings

Ingredients
8-10 small corn tortillas
2 lb ground beef
1 large yellow onion
1 green bell pepper
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp paprika
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp oregano
8 oz can tomato sauce

Toppings:
Shredded Monterey-Jack cheese
Sour cream
Tomato
Avocado
Black Olives
Shredded lettuce


Chop your onion and bell pepper.


In a large pan, add the chopped meat and cook until brown. Break up into small pieces as it is cooking.


To the pan, add the chopped onions and peppers.


Next, add your spices.


Add the tomatoe sauce and continue to boil for an additional 5-10 minutes. 


Heat a skillet and add a drop of oil. Add the tortillas and cook for 25-30 seconds on each side until crispy.


Prepare all your toppings: shred the lettuce, chop the tomato and olives and slice the avocado.


To your liking, prepare your pizza. Top the tortilla with a heaping spoonful of the meat mixture, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
