**Taco Meat:**

  • Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat, then add garlic and cook until golden.

  • Once the meat is cooked, add tomato sauce and cilantro. Mix well and set aside to cool slightly.

**”Pizza” Sauce:**

  • Mix enchilada sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder, oregano, and jalapeño juice in a small bowl. Set aside.

**Assembly and Cooking:**

  • Spread refried beans on one tortilla, then add taco meat and shredded cheese.
  • On another tortilla, spread the enchilada sauce, then add shredded cheese and diced tomatoes.
  • Heat a pan over medium-low heat, spray with oil, and toast both tortillas until crispy.
  • Stack the tortillas on top of each other (beans and beef on the bottom).
  • Repeat the process to make 3 to 4 pizzas.
  • Add sour cream, cilantro, and green onions on top, then cut into four pieces. Enjoy!


  • For an easier cooking method, toast the tortillas until crispy before adding fillings and toppings. Then, bake in the oven at 350°F for 8 to 10 minutes until the cheese melts.
  • Add a bit of cayenne powder to the taco meat for some extra heat if desired.
