Spider Web Mexican  Pizza  is my recipe of the day  with the  blogging group From  Our Dinner Table. We join  up once weekly posting on various topics.

As Halloween is approaching, we are doing a Creepy Creations thing.

Spider Web Mexican Pizza

We like  something  like the Taco Bell Mexican Pizza a lot, especially on the weekends. It also seems perfect for an easy Halloween treat or even for a party.

I use oversized flour tortillas to make the pizza and do it with ground beef, beans and cheese on the inside. That bakes up and lettuce is  added. You can get the big tortillas usually at Mexican grocery stores. Don’t worry if  you can’t  find  them-  just use smaller ingredient amounts on the smaller tortillas and they  will work  just as well. The little  ones will  even make great personal party  pizzas.

The top shell I bake separately  to keep it very crispy then cover it with enchilada sauce and sour cream at the last minute. My husband loves it- says there is nowhere to order such a thing out and he’s right you know. The best foods are made at home.

Spider Web Mexican Pizza

This comes together so quickly and easily it is almost criminal.  By why  make extra work on Beggar’s Night when there is already so much else to do from parties to Trick or Treating  with the kids?

Make  it easy on yourself and enjoy. Just be quick  to gobble it up.  That spider looks hungry and he might eat everything for himself.
