  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. dehydrated minced onion
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 T. water
  • 8 flour tortillas ( 6" round size)
  • 1 cup corn oil
  • 1 can (16 oz.) refried beans

In a large bowl, throroughly mix the ground beef with the flour, chili powder, salt, paprika, minced onion, garlic powder and onion powder. Place the ground beef and 2 T. water in a skillet. Saute over medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the ground beef is lightly browned, while breaking the ground beef into fine pieces; set aside Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Very lightly brown each tortilla, one at a time, about 30 to 40 seconds per side. Lightly warm the refried beans in a microwave oven, just enough to make them soft and spreadable.

Assemble the pizzas - Lay 4 tortillas on a cookie sheet. Spread the refried beans, about 1/3 cup, on each of the 4 tortillas. Spoon the ground beef over the beans, dividing it evenly among the 4 tortillas. Place another tortilla on top of each one. Dividing the ingredients evenly among the 4 tortillas... spread chunky salsa over each tortilla. Spoon the diced tomatoes on top. Add both kinds of shredded cheese, then the green onions, then the black olives. Bake in a preheated oven at 400° for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
