'Jo Beth's Mexican Pizza'

   We're gonna' change things up a bit! It's always fun to experience new things and discover what kinds of foods make other folks happy - and so I've decided to start a 'mini-series'...publishings of my friends & families fave recipes that they really enjoy, are quick and easy (of course) to prepare and
naturally, DERN TASTY! And so daddy-o, we'll try these recipes together but (as usual) first things
first! Fix you a little (or big) something soothing & let's see what everyone else is cookin'!!
  My friend Jo Beth, from Riverview FL, tickles her families fancy with this quick cook, flavor filled, 'Mexican Pizza' YUM!! I've had different versions of  this recipe before so now we'll try it Jo Beth's way. I already have most of the ingredients but I did have to shop for a few tidbits...
   This is what we need:
        1. 8 6in tortilla shells (makes 4 pizzas)
        2. 1lb ground beef
        3. 1 package taco seasoning mix
        4. 1 16oz can refried beans
        5. 1 jar of salsa (mild, med, hot your call)
        6. sour cream (a good dollop for each pizza)
        7. 8 oz shredded cheddar cheese       
        8. veggies of your choosing, Jo Beth uses sliced blk olives, shred lettuce, mild green chilies
            and diced tomato (but think of all the possibilities...chopped onion, diced green pepper,
            jalapenos, hot sauce, whatever ya like)    
   After we sooth ourselves one more time, let's preheat the ol' oven to 350 and get a baking sheet ready. In a med skillet, brown the beef until cooked through. Drain. Sprinkle taco seas. over the beef and follow pkg directions. Place four torts on the baking sheet. Begin to build! Put a good big spoonful of taco beef on each tortilla. Spoon a little salsa over the meat. Place another tortilla on top
of each pizza. Drop a big glob of refried beans on top and spread evenly. You can add onion or any of the peppers here if your using them (unless you like em' raw, then just hang on a few mins). Cover beans with cheese and stick them in the oven. After about 10 mins, when cheese is hot and melted,
take them out and top with lettuce, tomatoes, olives, sour cream or whatever else your using.
     How fun, kids also love these pizzas. Experiment with these...make you're own delicious delights for your family but always make everything DERN TASTY!! Have a quick, tasty weeknight recipe you'd like to share? Email it to me at and keep it tasty!! Love ya!
