  • Hey dudes!

  • I am Hilah, and today on Hilah Cooking I am gonna show you a homemade version of a fast

  • food favorite.

  • We're making Mexican pizza!

  • So this is what I like to classify as an old white lady recipe.

  • It's a total bastardization of both Italian food and Mexican food and maybe it's not even

  • really that good, but I used to love these when I used to go to Taco Bell, so here's

  • a Mexican pizza a la Taco Bell at home.

  • Guaranteed not to be healthy.

  • [MUSIC]

  • [Mexican Pizza!

  • Taco Bell Copycat Recipe]

  • First we have to make our cheapo, knock-off Taco Bell sauce, so in this pot I've got tomato

  • sauce, some water, and that's for texture!

  • Some vinegar, I am using an apple cider vinegar, but you could use just plain old, white vinegar

  • if that's all you have, some minced garlic, and then all my dry spices, and that's like

  • cumin, onion powder, chili powder, black pepper.

  • If you go to HilahCooking.com, I've always got the printable recipes there with all the

  • exact measurements if you want to check that out.

  • Okay, just give a little stir like so.

  • You know how to stir, and that's it.

  • We're just gonna leave it alone to simmer back here while we fry our tortillas, and

  • I've already got over here I've got my ground beef filling which is just the ground beef

  • filling recipe from my crispy tacos video, so you can go watch that and can see how to

  • make that, and then some refried beans which I've also done a video on like a million years

  • ago, so I'll put, I'll annotate to those videos at the end of this one if you want.

  • Okay, I've got some oil, and we want to get this heated up to about 300 degrees, and some

  • flour tortillas, so these are just flour.

  • If we were using corn tortillas, we'd be making tostadas, but since we're using flour tortillas,

  • we're making I don't know, Mexican pizzas.

  • Okay, and then I've got a knife here.

  • I am just gonna cut some holes in my flour tortillas.

  • That's gonna help prevent them from like puffing up like a balloon which they would do if you

  • didn't do this.

  • So you just want to get your stack.

  • It's the tip of the knife here.

  • It's probably bad for your knife, but use a cheap one.

  • I am just waiting for my oil to heat up.

  • Use a thermometer!

  • It helps.

  • Okay, so our oil is about 300, and you can fry them hotter than that, but they tend to

  • brown super-duper quick, so a little lower might be better, and then just slip it on

  • in, and it will still puff up a little bit but not nearly as much as it would if you

  • hadn't poked holes in it.

  • So maybe like, 30 seconds on each side.

  • Okay.

  • Awesome!

  • And I've just got a little paper napkin over here to drain them on.

  • We'll fry these other ones.

  • Okay, so once all your tortillas are fried, and your sauce probably by this time has been

  • simmering 10-15 minutes, so it should be good.

  • Assembly time!

  • Assembly time!

  • Assembling Mexican taco time!

  • So, I've got that, our little thing, and I am gonna broil these, so put them on a little

  • baking sheet, throw a little beans on there.

  • Beans kind of hold the whole thing together.

  • My God, this is ridiculous.

  • Not for everyday eating folks.

  • Some of our meat filling.

  • Great.

  • Fabulous, and then I am gonna put a little bit of sauce.

  • I don't want to like douse it because I don't want to sog this thing out.

  • I want it to stay pretty crunchy.

  • That'll do.

  • A little queso, that's Spanish for cheese.

  • Okay, there, and then we top it with another one, a little sauce on top of that.

  • It smells slightly better than Taco Bell.

  • Although, not much because Taco Bell kind of smells like heaven.

  • Am I right?

  • Just kidding.

  • Okay, and some more cheese.

  • Don't be stingy.

  • Nobody like a stingy.

  • Okay, and then I am just gonna put this in the broiler under low heat just to get that

  • cheese melted.

  • Okay, so this literally just took like 30 seconds or something, so let's see if I can

  • get it off onto my plate without destroying everything including the world.

  • Oh, look!

  • I did it!

  • Piece of cake.

  • Okay, then we're gonna top it with green onions, tomato.

  • I am pretty sure that's all they do at Taco Bell, and then some sour cream because we're

  • doing it supreme style, right?

  • As long as you're gonna kill yourself with food, you might as well do it fast.

  • Mexican pizza anyone?

  • So it's kind of, oh my God, I can't believe I made this [laughs].

  • It's kind of a bear to eat, but let's see.

  • If you wanted to make this lower calorie, you could totally just do one tortilla.

  • Mmmmm, the sauce really does taste like Taco Bell sauce though, so there you go, there's

  • that.

  • Okay, it's actually really good.

  • I totally know why someone would eat this.

  • This is yummy.

  • It's crunchy.

  • The tortillas are like really light and flaky unlike a corn tortilla which is a little bit

  • more brittle, this just almost like a pie crust.

  • It's like a Mexican pizza pie.

  • Okay, there you go, there's a hell with it Thursday episode for ya, Mexican pizza, try

  • it out, let me know what you think.

  • Leave a comment below, and as always thank you so much for watching.

  • Have a great day!

  • Bye!
