Fanfare for the common man: Mexican Pizza

With all the posts recently about homemade Mexican food and pizza. I thought I'd throw one out there for all of us who are either to lazy to make things from scratch or are culinary deficient. This is as close to authentic Mexican food that I've had. Pretty sad I know.

So lets get the ball rolling: First up the fix'ins.

Brown the beef up. This is close to 3 pounds of 85/15. I couldn't get 90/10. Once browned - drain the grease and put it back into the pan with 2.5 cups of water and the appropriate amount of Taco seasoning(3 packs for this attempt). Stirring occasionally until the water is basically gone.

Then spread the re-fried beans evenly over the pizza dough.

Then top the with the ground meat. I didn't use all 3 pounds. Probably about a half of it. Note: Be careful not to get to close to the edge of the dough.

Add a few spoons of chunky salsa.

And top with some shredded Mexican blend cheese.

Bake at 450* until the cheese has melted

Top with rough diced tomatoes

...and rough chopped lettuce

Since I know I can't eat 4 slices of pizza. I cut the pizza into qtrs. That way I can stick with my 2 slices.

Thanks for looking at my authentic New England Mexican pizza.

Boy howdy Chris, looks like you've got the best of both worlds right there, Like! I always feel that if you use chili powder, salsa, or Ortega chilis on anything it makes it Mexican food. RAY

Not a thing in the world wrong with that Chris. Darned good looking meal, probably tasted great, and was quick to put together. I'd sure as heck tear into a bunch of it :emoji_wink:

Not sure about the NE Mexicans, but since I'm near the Canadian border maybe the Canadian variety. Thanks for the like and a compliment Bear appreciate them. Also for the chuckle.
