Mexican Pizza

My food of choice from Taco Bell is either the chicken quesadilla or the mexican pizzas.  When I made the taco bake a while ago it reminded me of the mexican pizza, but wasn't quite it. When I found this recipe on pinterest I had to try it. It was pretty good, but not an exact replica of the Taco Bell version.

1/2 pound ground beef
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 15-oz can refried beans
4 9-inch flour tortillas
1/2 cup salsa
2 cups cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground beef. Drain off fat. Mix in chili powder, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper. 

Place tortilla on cookie sheet. Place half of the refried beans and half the meat on a tortilla. Repeat steps to make other pizza.  Place another tortilla on top and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Place half of the salsa on top and cover with cheese. 

Bake for another 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Slice and serve.  This recipe makes 2 pizza.
