Mexican Pizza

If you've ever had a Mexican pizza at Taco Bell, then this is a simple take-off. My kids really like these, which is odd because they usually don' like tacos. Must be the deep fried tortillas! It's a super easy meal and is ready in less then 30 minutes.

1 lb. ground beef
1 pkt. taco seasoning
1 can refried beans
shredded cheese
chopped tomatoes
diced green onion
sour cream
8 small flour tortillas
canola oil

Brown your ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain grease, add 1-2 Tbsp. water and taco seasoning and return to burner on low heat. Warm refried beans and cover to keep warm. Heat canola oil (enough to fill about an inch of the pan) over med-high heat. Once oil is hot, brown each side of the tortilla, making sure to pop any bubbles. The tortillas need to be as flat as possible.
Layer as follows:
browned tortilla
refried beans
browned tortilla
then top with:
green onion (you can put the pizzas under the broiler at this point to melt the cheese, if desired)
sour cream
