Here's a new taco-ish twist to pizza! They would make a yummy addition to your New Year's party. I'd never eaten a tostado shell before. Hmmmm.... I do think it suspiciously looks exactly like what I would envision a taco shell left flat would look like. Someone must have forgotton to put these in the taco shell folder and invented something new. Lucky duck probably got rich for the mistake! These cute little pizza were a nice change to our taco night. Enjoy :)
MINI MEXICAN PIZZA
1 lb ground beef
1 pkg. taco seasoning mix
1 can refried beans
1 pkg. tostada shells
2 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used colby/jack)
shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced black olices. sliced avocodo, sliced green onions, sour cream, guacamole, corn, salsa
Brown beef; drain. Stir in water and seasoning mix (the amount of water determined by your seasoning packet). Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cook, stirring occasionally for 5-6 minutes or until thickened.
Spread 2 TBSP beans on each shell. Top with 1/4 cup meat mixture and 1/4 cup cheese. Broil 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish with desired toppings.
