Refried Beans (I cook up the pot beans in bacon grease or lard with lots of onion and ground pepper)
Grated Cheese (I use a mix of cheddar and pepper jack)
Seasoned, Cooked Ground Beef
Roughly Chopped Olives
Preheat oven to 425˚F
Roll out your dough, spread the refritos thinly on it, spoon salsa over that. Sprinkle cheese over the top. Sprinkle the ground beef, sliced peppers, olives and sliced scallions (I just snip them over the top with scissors). Bake until crust is cooked and cheese melts to your liking, about 15 - 20 minutes. Serve with tomatoes and pickled jalapeno slices. Eat. The end.
These are guidelines, use what you have and like. It's a good way to use up extra beans, or to stretch only a little meat further. Our children universally like it.
But I think I'd like it better on tostadas anyway... Kim
