Happy Cinco de Mayo!

taco pizzamargarita

Love Mexican food, although not a big fan of spicy hot food 🙂  I have been experimenting with recipes that are “grain free” but still wanted tacos on Cinco de Mayo.  What I ended up creating was a taco pizza!

I used a crust mix that I purchased from: http://www.wheatfreemarket.com which is made from almond flour, coconut flour, and flaxseed along with spices like garlic powder.  It was very good and I might just have to purchase more.

If you want to make a taco pizza, feel free to use any pizza crust that your family enjoys – even a tortilla.

I browned up ground beef and seasoned just like I was making tacos.  Precooked the crust per the directions on the mix then topped with the browned seasoned beef, chopped onions, shredded mozzarella and cheddar cheeses.  Back in the oven until all the cheese melts.  Cool for about 5 minutes then top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and dollops of sour cream.  The results were wonderful and even good cold as leftovers (pizza for breakfast anyone?).

Of course I couldn’t have a taco dinner without sipping on a margarita!  I usually make a batch of “beer margaritas” and keep in the freezer.  What I do is take a can of frozen limeade and empty into a big pitcher.  Then fill the can with water and add to pitcher.  Then fill the can with tequila and add to the pitcher along with 1 can of beer.  Mix all ingredients together in pitcher and then pour into a gallon ziplock bag.  I then lay the bag flat in the freezer and when frozen scoop in glasses and enjoy!

What did you chew on May 5th??
