Mexican Pizzas with Homemade Refried Black Beans

Slightly spicy and delicious, these Mexican Pizzas with Homemade Refried Black Beans are an easy and healthier gluten-free version of Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza.

Mexican Pizzas with Homemade Refried Black Beans
·1 lb. ground beef, seasoned with Homemade Taco Seasoning
·Seasoned Black Beans recipe
·½ cup water
·Soft corn tortilla shells
·Mexican style shredded cheese
·Pickled jalapeƱo slices
·Green onions, chopped

Brown ground beef, drain grease, and then cook with Homemade Taco Seasoning.

In a small saucepan, combine all ingredients from my Seasoned Black Beans recipe with ½ cup water. Simmer for 5 minutes, and then mash to achieve your desired refried black bean consistency.

To assemble Mexican pizzas, top one corn tortilla shell with seasoned ground beef and cheese. Layer with another corn tortilla, topped with refried black beans and cheese. Top with another corn tortilla shell. Cover the top of the corn tortilla shell with salsa and cheese. Press in a greased George Foreman grill for 3-4 minutes. Remove and top with jalapeƱos and green onions.

Notes: Instead of using a George Foreman grill, you can assemble the Mexican pizzas and place in a 400˚ oven for 10 minutes. For crispier corn tortilla shells, fry in a skillet with oil before assembling.
