You’ll Love This

  • It’s so quick and easy! If you’ve got the homemade flatbread par-baked or some storebought naan on hand, you can have this flatbread Mexican pizza dinner on the table in about 15 minutes! The ingredients are all pantry staples and likely something you’ve got on hand already which means it’s easy to throw together at a moment’s notice on a busy weeknight!
  • This taco flatbread can be served as a main dish or an appetizer, which makes it a versatile vegetarian option for an easy weeknight dinner or a fun handheld appetizer for game day! You can top it with whatever your family typically enjoys on a taco, or let everyone make their own and customize their toppings!
  • This recipe is totally customizable and is a great “clean out the fridge” dinner! As written, this recipe is vegetarian. However, you could bulk it up with some leftover ground beef taco meat. Or keep it vegetarian friendly by adding my vegan quinoa and walnut taco “meat”. You could also swap the black beans for pinto or try adding olives or pickled jalapenos.

Instructions

Make my quick and easy 5-minute homemade flatbread recipe (following the instructions to par-bake it before topping) or use two storebought naans or flatbread.

Divide refried beans evenly between the flatbreads, spreading it in an even layer. Add a drizzle of taco sauce to each flatbread crust.

Tips

  • If you don’t have time to make my super easy 5-minute flatbread dough – although, seriously, who doesn’t have 5 minutes?!?!? – you can use naan or any store-bought flatbread in its place. You could even use pizza dough in its place as well!
  • If you’re planning to keep this dish vegetarian, make sure you look for vegetarian refried beans. Traditional refried beans are made with lard (which is an animal product) but there are plenty of brands that offer vegetarian refried beans!
  • If you’re not feeling refried beans for the base, you could use sour cream or salsa in its place as well. I can’t get enough beans, to be honest, but I get that they’re not everyone’s jam, so feel free to switch it up with something you enjoy. I’m not going to lie, I’ve made this with crockpot queso dip as the base and it is DELISH!
  • I highly recommend taking the extra time to make my crispy, crunchy tortilla strips for this flatbread! It adds a bit more texture and makes it taste just like a taco!
