Better than Taco Bell

Mexican pizzas

Now let me start this post out by saying how big of a Taco Bell Fan I am and have always been. Mexican pizzas have always been a favorite of mine too.

Being in the safer at home quarantine season that we are in, I have been trying to come up with fun restaraunt recipes that I Love but don’t have frequent access during this time.

I bring you my version of the Taco Bell

Yes, we eat off paper plates, this is real life and rushing to get meals prepared on a weeknight after work, but as the gorgeous Tabitha Brown says thats my business

Anyway back to my recipe
