Mexican Pizzas from Taco Bell were always one of my favorite things to eat when I was younger. I always felt pretty special eating one from it’s own little box.


When I was grocery shopping recently, I found some cute little Street Taco tortillas from Mission. I immediately knew that I wanted to use them to make my own Taco Bell Mexican Pizzas.


They ended up being the perfect size for my kiddos and were super easy to make! Definitely a crowd pleaser at my house.

Helpful Kitchen Tools



How to Make Mexican Pizzas

  • Enchilada Sauce: Pour the can of tomato sauce in a bowl, add the spices and mix.


  • Mexican Pizzas: Scoop 2-3 tablespoons, of refried beans on a tortilla and spread around.


  • Next add 2-3 tablespoons of the meat mixture and sprinkle a little bit of cheese on top to hold things together.

  • Place the Mexican pizzas in the oven for 8-10 minutes until the cheese is melted.


  • Remove from the oven and let them sit for a minute or two before serving.


The great thing about the mini size of these pizzas is that they are small enough to pick up and eat with your hands!


My kids like me to use a pizza cutter and slice them into fourths. That way they have cute little pizza slices.
