Mexican pizzas at home

Some of my dearest childhood memories revolve around taco bell🤣

Seriously though Slumber parties, Christmas party with friends, ask me where I wanted to eat and taco bell would be the answer every time😍

My grown up taste buds still like taco bell for a quick bite to eat every so often(not everyday like before)

But even though I still like taco bell I would much rather cook so here is my version of the Mexican pizza(one of my favorite taco bell dishes)
