Show Some Love!

I love taco bell Mexican pizza, so in the spirit of continuing my tradition of attempting to duplicate my restaurant favorites, I had to come up with my own Mexican pizza recipe.

I love this recipe, it is a flavorful combination of seasoned ground beef, enchilada sauce, flour tortillas, refried beans, and Roma tomatoes. A simple recipe to make at home for a Copycat Taco Bell Mexican pizza at home.

I decided to make this Mexican pizza recipe in my Power Air Fryer Oven. And it turned out amazing. I have recreated a few of my favorites using my air fryer or instant pot.

If you’re on the fence about making this Mexican pizza recipe in the air fryer, please just try this recipe and see how tasty it is! I’m confident you’ll soon love using your air fryer for a delicious taco bell Mexican pizza as often as possible.

All of the air fryer recipes I’ve tried taste great enough that I prefer mine over the original restaurant recipes. Here are a few of my favorite air fryer and instant pot recipes:

I am hoping you share my love for copycat recipes. I love this Copycat Red Lobster Air Fryer Stuffed Mushrooms, they are so delicious. My Copycat Air Fryer Chick fil A Chicken Nuggets Recipe is my most popular recipe. It tastes so much like the restaurant version.

Does the Mexican pizza have meat?

Yes, this Mexican pizza recipe does, the first tortilla is topped with refried beans and seasoned meat, I like to use my homemade taco seasoning.

If you are vegetarian you could definitely leave the meat off without taking away from the awesomeness of this great recipe.

How much is a Taco Bell Mexican Pizza?

A Mexican pizza from Taco Bell is right around $3.50. But for that amount you can make a few if you use this Mexcian pizza recipe. At least 4 and will have some ingredients leftover.

This Mexican pizza recipe can easily be made using the stove also. With both methods, you will brown your meat over medium-high heat.

And with the tortillas, you can preheat your oven, put them on a baking sheet and make them crunchy in there.

The one thing I did notice with crisping them in the air fryer is that as they “dry” out they tend to get lighter and fly around a little bit.

To prevent this if you have the air fryer oven you can put a second airflow rack on the slots above it when making this Mexican pizza recipe.

My kitchen gadgets have been a life changer, for me as a single mom, the instant pot saves dinner more times than not because it is so quick and easy.

Did you know, that you can cook from frozen in both the instant pot and air fryer? I also often use my air fryer to reheat things that may get “soggy” in the fridge.

Copycat Taco Bell Mexican Pizza Recipe

You no longer have to worry about throwing out fries or this Mexican pizza recipe, because just a few minutes in this thing makes them taste like when you ate it the first time.

I have had the Power Fryer XL and recently upgraded to the Power Fryer Oven.

I blessed my bestie with the old one, she loves it! And I am deeper in love with my new one.

If you are on the fence about getting an air fryer, I am here to pull you off. You will love this thing. I hope that you’ll get an air fryer and try out this Mexican pizza recipe as soon as possible. You won’t be disappointed!

I have so many great recipes planned for this year that you will be mad that you didn’t get one.
