Sooooo yummy!! I pinned this Taco Bell knock-off (because who doesn't like a good knock-off?) recipe from Honey What's Cookin' a few weeks ago and since I set a personal goal to make at least one pin a week, this seemed like the next logical choice. Right?
It was super easy, and the steps are outlined beautifully at the original post, but I'll give you the run down of how it went at my house.
First, line your cookie sheet with foil and heat your oven to 400 degrees.
Lightly brush two tortillas with oil on each side, lay them on the cookie sheet, and place the sheet in the oven.
In the meantime, heat your beans on the stove, adding a little milk and taco seasoning.
Bake the tortillas five minutes on each side.
Break up a fight between your children.
Suddenly realize your timer went off a few minutes ago. Rush to the kitchen, open the oven, remove the burnt tortillas and start over.
Once the new tortillas are finished, remove them from the oven.
Realize you haven't taken any pictures, run to grab your camera only to remember you left it at your office. Again. Bad blogger! Pick up your point and shoot and pray the pictures are "blog worthy."
Spread beans on one half (this is where I also added some leftover slow cooker carnitas. I'll have to share that recipe with you soon). You should probably remove them from the hot cookie sheet at this point so you don't burn your fingers. Not that I know anything about that.
Top with the other tortilla and spread salsa on top.
Remove all tomatoes and peppers from the salsa after your son walks by and declares he won't eat that "icky stuff."
Top with cheese and pick up the cookie sheet to place back in the oven.
Immediately drop the sheet because, by golly, that sucker is still hot!
Using your oven mit this time, place in the oven for about five or six minutes.
Remove from the oven, transfer to a cutting board and cut with a pizza cutter or a large knife.
Announce to your children that it's time to eat, and enjoy!

Oh, and obviously I need to work on my photography skills with my P & S. Or get a new house with better lighting. Either way.
