  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 (1 1/4 oz) package taco seasoning
  • 2 tbsps water
  • 8 small flour tortillas
  • 1 (16 oz) can refried black beans
  • 1/2 cup pico
  • 3/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Monterey jack cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup black olive, sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Preheat George Foreman Grill. Grill tortillas for 2 minutes each side.
  3. At the same time, brown beef in a sautépan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, drain. Return to pan. Mix in taco seasoning and water. Set aside.
  4. In the same pan ((no need to wash), heat refried beans for 2-3 minutes over medium-high heat.
  5. Spread 1/4 refried beans on one tortilla, followed by 1/4 beef mixture, and top with another tortilla.
  6. Spread 3 tbsps salsa on the second tortilla, then add Cheddar and Monterey jack cheese. Sprinkle 1 tbsp green onion and 1 tbsp olive. Top with 2 tbsps pico.
  7. Do the same with the other 3 pizzas.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Serve with the rest of the salsa and pico.


Preparation Time includes making the salsa and the pico. If you choose to fry tortillas, here is how to do it. Heat a small amount of Canola oil in a skillet. Once the oil is hot, place one tortilla in and fry for 30-45 seconds each side. Keep the tortillas as flat as possible and pop up any bubbles that may form. Transfer to paper towel to drain.
