After seeing this recipe from Trader Joe's Recipes, I knew I just had to make them! I don't go to Taco Bell often (likely a good thing!), but I did order this Mexican pizza just to compare. I'm not really sure why - usually I just get disappointed with my order. But then, how's a restaurant, and fast food at that, to compare with homemade? Not only were these "Mexican" pizzas tasty, they were fairly easy to make too. You just spread some refried beans and taco meat on one tortilla, and some cheese and taco toppings on the other. Stack the two tortillas, and you're ready to satisfy your craving!
