Mexican Pizza

Hubby has a hate/hate relationship with refried beans. Not sure where it came from, or how to get him over it.
Anytime I make something that has beans in it, I have to omit it for him. Ah the sacrifices we make for those we love!

This recipe is for 1 pizza. Naturally, for my family of 3, I tripled it.
Please make your own judgement about what your family will eat. Darling daughter managed to eat all of hers...but hubby only ate half of his, and I ate about 1/3 of mine.
(Note: this reheats deliciously for lunch the next day)

The article this came from, compared this to "a certain fast food chain", but homemade is always waaay better!

2 Medium flour tortillas
½ Cup oil
¼ Cup refried beans
¼ Cup cheddar cheese
¼ Cup ground beef or shredded chicken (seasoned and cooked)
1 Tbsp green onion (chopped)
2 Tbsp taco sauce
⅛ Cup tomato (seeded and diced)
Dollop of sour cream

1. Heat oil in a small frying pan. Fry tortillas one at a time until golden and crispy. Drain.
2. Warm the beans and meat together in a pan over low heat. (If you are using canned beans, you may want to thin them out with a spoonful of water)
3. Spread meat/beans mixture on top of one of the tortillas, top with remaining tortilla
4. Spread taco sauce on top of filled tortilla.
5. Add cheddar and heat under a broiler until cheese is melted
6. Sprinkle green onion, tomato, and sour cream on top.

Ingredients: Maybe a smaller tortilla would have made for meals we could finish

Everything all put together

I peeled mine open to show off the inside goodness
