Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza

Make Taco Bell's Mexican Pizza recipe right at home! Ingredients include a three-cheese blend, enchilada sauce, and a replica of their beef seasoning mix!

Ingredients

  • 8 6-inch tortillas
  • 1/2 lb. Ground Beef, 80 or 85%
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 3/4 cup refried beans, see notes

Beef Seasoning

  • ½ Tablespoon garlic salt
  • ½ Tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 ½ Tablespoons chili powder
  • ½ Tablespoons smoked paprika
  • ½ Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch

Enchilada Sauce

  • 1/2 cup enchilada sauce
  • ½ teaspoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon juice from diced green chilies

Cheese

  • 1/2 cup Cheddar, grated
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella, grated
  • 1/2 cup Monterey Jack, grated

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Brown the beef in a pan over medium heat and drain any excess grease.
  • Add the oats and beef seasonings (except for the corn starch), and stir to combine. Heat until the water has reduced by half, about 5 minutes. Mix in the cornstarch and heat until thickened, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Spread the refried beans across the top of 4 tortillas, then top with the beef mixture and another tortilla.
  • Combine the enchilada sauce ingredients and spread on the top of each of the 4 tortillas. Top each with diced tomatoes and then with the 3-cheese blend.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is melted. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

TIP: Taco Bell has their own brand-name refried beans at the grocery store. 
TIP: For crispier tortillas, fry them for a few minutes in ¼ cup vegetable oil over medium heat. For a lighter alternative, you can bake them for 5 minutes or so in the oven prior to building the pizzas.
