Mini Mexican Pizza's
1lb of Ground Beef
1 can of Salsa
1 can of Refried Beans
1 Package of Taco Seasoning
2 Cup of Mexican Cheese Blend
6-9 Tortillas (when they are cut smaller you need less to make 12 mini's)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray a 12 count muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.
Start by laying each tortilla out individually on a flat surface, and use an empty can, glass cup, or cookie cutter to cut 3-4 medium circles out of each wrap. ( I only had an oval cookie cutter, so I used it and it worked fine)
Press each wrap circle into muffin tin using your fingers. (Note: it doesn’t have to cover the entire side of the tin, it should just fit snuggly!)
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together the ground meat, salsa, taco seasoning, and refried beans. Stir until well combined.
Scoop 1/8th cup of meat mixture into each wrap
Top with shredded cheese, (dividing evenly between each pizza), and olives if desired, (I used green onions instead because I like that better
Bake in pre-heated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until cheese is melted
Wait for mini Mexican pizzas to cool, and remove from muffin tin using a fork or knife. Pizza’s should pop out with ease!
Serve with a side of salsa, low fat sour cream, chopped tomatoes, and/or shredded lettuce if desired!
