How to Make A Taco Bell Mexican Pizza at Home

In a large skillet, brown the Ground Sirloin, until completely done, and remove any excess fat from the pan, and Sirloin. 

Let cool, and crumble Sirloin into small pieces. Add 2 Tablespoons of the Taco Seasoning, and stir well. 

Chop the Onion, and set aside. 

Wash and chop the Tomato, salt and pepper, and set aside. 

Rinse and dry the Cilantro with paper Towels, chop fine, and place in the refrigerator. 

Place the beans in a non-stick pan, and heat until bubbly. 

Add 1 teaspoon of the Chopped Onion, and 1 Tablespoon of the Shredded Cheese.  Cook 3 minutes on low, and remove from heat. 

Lay two of the Tostadas on a plate, and spread the Refried beans on the Tostada shells, then add seasoned Meat, shredded Cheese, and drizzle Taco Sauce over the top.
