1 (4 ounce) can

Excellent. I baked the tortillas flat in the oven at 375 for 12 minutes instead of deep frying. Then I added the beans and beef to one tortilla, topped with another and added cheese and salsa and other toppings to the top tortilla.
If you bake this as long as stated in recipe you'll end up with ruined cheese. Bake just until cheese melts, doesn't take long. I make these using a low carb flour tortilla. I'm diabetic, and these are great for me. I can enjoy pizza. One day I wanted pizza and thought what can I do, so that's what I came up with. Now, I see there is a recipe on All recipes for the same thing. Nothing new under the sun is there?
This was great. The only thing I changed was I wanted more Taco Bell like Mexican Pizzas, so I spread the beans on the tortilla, topped that with meat, then addd another tortilla and covered that with cheese and baked for 10 minutes. Then I topped them with sour cream, salsa, and jalapeno peppers. Great recipe even without the changes though :) Thanks
Way better than the Taco Bells Mexican Pizza! I used 8 tortillas instead. I put the beans, meat, cheese, and more beans in between two tortillas, then baked them for about 12 minutes, then added cheese atop of that and baked for another 5 minutes, just until the cheese on top of the top tortilla is melted. Then, I put the tomatoes, olives, Jalepenos(instead of the can of green chiles), sour cream, and green onoins on top. It was very very good.
Great alternative to tacos. They are a lot of fun and I serve as a main dish for just my husband and I.
This was great. I topped it w/ another tortilla as someone suggested. I left this in for 20 minutes. A few minutes before done, sprinkle cheese on top of 2nd tortilla. Take out and top w/ whatever you want. Definitely cut into wedges, a lot easier to eat.
We liked it so much we ate it 3 nights in a row! I did use ground turkey (7% fat) and followed the suggestion to bake the tortillas. I just baked them with the beans, ground turkey and cheese on them. We also added lettuce since we don't care for olives...
EASY & FUN TO MAKE Always a great answer to "what do I do with the leftover tortillas?". You can make this even easier and faster by using canned black or pinto beans...ground up if you wish. Just BE SURE to drain out the juice that comes in the can. I sometimes use salsa & cheese sauce instead of tomatoes & grated cheese. It depends on what I have on hand and want to use up!
