  • Taco Bell Sauce:
  • 8 ounces (1 cup) tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • Pizzas:
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 1 1/2 cups oil
  • Refried beans, beef taco filling, cheese, green onions, tomatoes, sour cream


  1. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small pot and bring to simmer.
  2. Simmer 10-15 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally.
  3. While it simmers, put your oil in a large skillet. Should be about 1/2″ deep. Begin heating it to 300ºF.
  4. Stack the tortillas on a cutting board and use the tip of a knife to make 8-10 small (1/4″) slits in the tortillas. Stab them gently all over. This helps prevent tortilla balloons and they stay flatter and more stackable.
  5. When oil if hot, fry tortillas one at a time for just about 30 seconds on each side until golden. Drain on paper.
  6. Once all are fried, lay 4 out on a baking sheet. Spread each with a couple tablespoons of refried beans, 1/4 cup taco meat, a tablespoon or two of sauce, a tablespoon of cheese. Top with another shell. Spoon 2-3 more tablespoons of sauce and cheese on top.
  7. Broil on low heat for just a few seconds until the cheese is melted.
  8. Sprinkle with tomatoes, green onion, and a top with sour cream.
  9. Serve right away.
