This is a very filling recipe. It fed our family of four with enough leftovers for another meal.

1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 packet taco seasoning (or 3 tablespoons homemade mix)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1 (16 ounce) can refried beans
8 (10 inch) flour tortillas
1 cup salsa
2 cups shredded, Mexican blend cheese
1/2 cup sour cream (optional)


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat 4 pie tins with non-stick cooking spray.
2. In a skillet over medium heat, cook beef, onion and garlic until beef is evenly browned and onion is tender. Drain. Season the meat with taco seasoning and salt. Stir in water, and simmer until thickened.
3. Lay one tortilla in each pie tin, and cover with a layer of refried beans. Spread a fourth of the seasoned ground beef over each one, and then cover with a second tortilla. Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.
4. Remove the tins from the oven, and let cool slightly. Spread each top tortilla with 1/4 cup of the salsa. Cover each pizza with 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
5. Return the pizzas to the oven, and bake for 10 more minutes, until the cheese is melted. Remove from the oven, and let cool slightly before slicing each one into 4 pieces. Garnish with sour cream if desired.

These are delicious! I made them for supper tonight and even my 6 yo ds, a normally picky eater, gobbled it right up!
BTW, I love both of your blogs. You have great tips and advice without sounding condescending.
