Mexican Tostada Pizza

Another Tuesday means another great day for tacos! I was trying to think of a new taco type dish for my family that was a little different than the usual tacos, taco salad or bean burritos (yes, a little stretch, but still in the same family). I decided to make something a little more fun, a Mexican Tostada Pizza! Taco Bell has something similar on their menu, but I think they are WAY better when they’re homemade. I must confess though, I do love adding some Taco Bell Mild Sauce to my re-fried beans. You can buy them at the store…..or dig through your car for all those extra packets you save….you know you have some. I can’t be the only one who does this! I like using flour tortillas, but you could use corn too. This makes a great meal or you can serve it as an appetizer.
