8 (6 inch)
Mission® Fajita Flour Tortillas, cooked into crispy tortillas
refried beans, prepared
ground beef, chuck, raw
salt to taste
pepper to taste
pizza sauce, prepared
Mexican Cheese Blend, grated, prepared
Roma tomato, fresh, small chop
cilantro, fresh, rough chopped
Here's how to turn this 4 star recipe into a 5 star: 1) Don't cook the tortillas for 8 minutes-probably just 4 or 5. You just want them a little crispy-not burnt. 2) Add 1 pkg of taco seasoning mix to the ground beef, once its cooked. 3) Top with Tex Mex Cheese, chopped tomatoes, green onions, (black olives, if you wish), and a dollop of sour cream. 4) Voila!! You've automatically added an extra star! Enjoy! I made these for "Cinco De Mayo". They were a big hit: Even with my picky 4 year old niece!
If I make again I would probably substitute green peppers or mushrooms for the tomatoes and leave off the cilantro.
These were good, but took some time.
(I made a number of changes.)
I used picante sauce instead of pizza sauce & added chopped black olives & green chiles to give more flavor. I also added taco seasoning to the ground beef & used refried black beans. I left out the onions & tomatoes but added shredded lettuce. My family loved these & said that they were so much better than Taco Bell (thank goodness!)
I used salsa instead of tomato sauce. I also added taco seasoning to the ground beef. I topped the 'pizza' with chopped onion, chopped tomatoes, and cheese. After baking I sprinkled with chopped scallions instead of cilantro. Also made guacamole and served it with sour cream and rice. Really quite tasty!!
I thought this was very good. I gave 4 stars because I feel it needed a few changes. I used enchilada sauce in place of the pizza sauce. Also, I cooked the ground beef with a packet of taco seasoning, to add flavor. It turned out great!
used 2 packets of taco bell mild sauce instead of pizza sauce, it was sooo good also topped with sliced olives and red pepper, very similar to taco bell's, oh and season the meat with taco seasoning. salt and pepper only?? yuck.
As written, this is a 4 star recipe at most, but with simple modifications it is easily deserving of 5 stars. I browned the meat (I used ground turkey) as directed, with just a little salt and pepper, but after tasting it, I knew that wasn't going to cut it. After browning, I added a package of taco seasoning. I also used hot taco sauce on top instead of pizza sauce for more Mexican flavor. We really enjoyed these and they were really quick to prepare, will make again. Thank you :)
Being a vegetarian, I used SOYrizo instead of ground beef. It comes packaged and seasoned like regular chorizo and it was actually quite delicious. i also sprinkled a little bit of cotija on top adding a great flavor and it doesn't melt! it was great!
