Natalie's Homemade Taco Seasoning
1 lb lean ground beef
taco size flour tortillas
shredded cheddar cheese
1 can refried beans
tomato, chopped for topping
green onions, chopped for topping
black olives for topping
cilantro, chopped for topping
avocado, sliced for topping
sour cream for topping
Brown ground beef in skillet. Add taco seasoning. Drain off excess grease.
In a separate, nonstick skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat and brown tortillas (2 per pizza) until crispy on both sides (about 30 seconds per side). Set them aside. Heat beans in same pan.
Assemble pizzas by spreading beans on one side of a tortilla, put on plate, top with meat, a layer of taco sauce, and another tortilla with beans (bean side down). Cover with cheddar cheese.
Place assembled pizzas on cookie sheet and put under broiler for a few minutes, until cheese is just melted. Watch them, they burn quickly!
Top with tomato, onions, olives, avocado, sour cream, and extra taco sauce!

Baby Girl gave her silly stamp of approval! The olives and sour cream were her favorites!
I'm going to be MIA tomorrow my friends. I have to sit like a sloth for 8 hrs in a boring lecture to get continuing education credits for a profession I haven't practiced in 10 yrs. Trust, me, I'd rather be blogging. Have a good weekend!
