Hi everyone, I’m Leanne Blackmon from UrbanGirlBakes.com! I started Urban Girl Bakes a couple of months ago, but some of you might have seen me from my fashion blog, Classy Yet Trendy. On that blog, I posted recipes occasionally and noticed that traffic on the recipe posts were really high. So, I thought I would start Urban Girl Bakes, a blog about recipes, blogging and lifestyle. I enjoy sharing my recipes and blogging tips with everyone!
I’m so excited to be guest contributor today on Practically Functional! Jessi has a fabulous blog and I like reading about her recipes, projects and cleaning tips. I also look forward to joining the Creativity Unleashed Link Party each week and seeing other bloggers’ posts.
Today, I’m sharing with you all my Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza.
This is a copycat version of the “Taco Bell” Mexican Pizza that is so easy to make and tastes absolutely delicious!
I’ve loved Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza for years now. There’s something about the crisp tortillas, taco sauce, tender tomatoes, and melted cheese that tastes so delicious! I remember years ago when our local Taco Bell added sliced black olives and sliced green onions on the top. Now, they no longer include those toppings.
Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza is my favorite item on the menu. It’s about the only item I get when I go there. My copycat version of the Mexican Pizza is budget-friendly too. You probably have all the ingredients in your pantry and refrigerator to prepare this recipe!
It’s really easy to make! You start off by heating the tortilla shells in a skillet, about 1-2 minutes per side. Then, you heat your refried beans. Spread some of the refried beans all over one of the tortilla shells and place the other tortilla shell over it. Next, you spread taco sauce all over the top of the tortilla shell, add your tomatoes, mexican blend shredded cheese and green onion slices. Bake in the oven just enough to melt the cheese, then voila it’s ready to eat!
