What To Cook With Ground Beef: Mexican Pizza

Mexican Pizza
(Recipe courtesy of my aunt, in our recently published family cookbook.)
1 pizza crust
1 lb ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 can refried beans (15 oz)
1 can diced green chiles, drained (4 oz)
1 jar Ortega mild taco sauce (8 oz)
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare pizza crust on a baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes. Brown the ground beef, onion and garlic until cooked through. Drain, if necessary. Spread refried beans to the edge of baked crust. (I mix my beans with a little sour cream to make them more spreadable.) Layer meat mixture, taco sauce, cheese and chiles onto the beans. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Serve topped with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, olives, guacamole, or whatever your heart desires!
