Mexican Pizza (barbarabakes)

1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 c diced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T chili powder
1 t ground cumin
1/2 t black pepper
1/2 t salt
dash cayenne powder
1 16 oz can refried beans
4 10″ flour tortillas
1/2 c salsa
2 c shredded Mexican cheese blend
2 green onions, chopped
8 grape tomatoes, diced
1/4 c finely chopped jalapeno peppers
1/4 c sour cream (opt)

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment, Silpat or foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. In a large skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium-high heat until beef is browned and onion is tender. Drain grease. Stir in chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne. Place 2 tortillas side by side on baking sheet, and cover with a layer of refried beans. Scatter half of the seasoned ground beef over each tortilla, and then cover with a second tortilla. Bake 10 min. Remove the baking sheet from the oven. Spread salsa on top of each top tortilla stack. Top with cheeses, tomatoes, green onions and jalapenos. Return the pizzas to the oven, and bake for 5 – 10 more min until the cheese is melted. Remove from oven, and let cool slightly before slicing each one into 4 pieces. Yield: 4 – 8 servings.
