If the day Taco Bell finally brings back Mexican Pizza is a joyous occasion for you, we’ve come up with a recipe you might want to try at home in case the fast food chain decides to take it off the menu again.

This Mexican Pizza recipe comes from the Herdez brand, which makes items like salsa, guacamole, and tortilla chips. Unlike Taco Bell’s version, this one looks more like a real pizza and has only one layer.

Herdez’s recipe uses three of the brand’s products, but all you really need is tortilla, cheese, salsa, guacamole, onions, cilantro, and onions. You can buy Herdez products from major grocery retailers, including Walmart, Target, and Amazon. Herdez is a Hormel Foods company.

You can also choose to add skirt steak as the recipe suggests or leave it meatless.

Check out the full recipe below:

Herdez Mexican Pizza


4 large flour tortillas

2 cups shredded Mexican cheese mix

8 ounces Herdez Salsa Casera

½ red onion, thinly sliced

12 ounces seasoned cooked skirt steak, chopped

8 ounces Herdez Guac Salsa

8 ounces Herdez Traditional Guacamole Light

4 tablespoons coriander, finely chopped


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray the bread with cooking spray. Toast both sides of the bread using a hot grill. Once removed, spread the cheeses, Herdez Salsa Casera, onions, and steak evenly on each tortilla.

Bake on a wire rack in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese melts.

Garnish with Herdez Guac salsa and/or Herdez Gucamole and garnish with coriander.
