I love tacos. I would be more than happy to have taco night at least once a week. In fact, when my husband and I first started dating, tacos were the first meal that we made together.
So why is it that I can’t just leave them alone?
When I was asked by my friends at Old El Paso to come up with a recipe using their Traditional Refried Beans, my mind immediately went to tacos. But I couldn’t do regular old tacos. That wouldn’t be very exciting.
So I decided to combine two of my favorites – tacos and pizza. Seriously – they are totally a match made in heaven!!
And I couldn’t stop at topping my pizza with tacos. I went and loaded them up with all the good stuff. Guacamole. Pico de gallo. Sour cream. And oh yeah – did I tell you I made them mini? Isn’t everything mini better?
I think I’m going to have to start combining foods more often, because these were mighty tasty. Now I just need to think of the next thing my tacos would taste good on top of!
