1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 envelope taco seasoning mix
1/2 cup water
3 (10-inch) flour tortillas
1 (16 oz) can refried beans
1 cup sliced pitted ripe olives, divided
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided
Sour Cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef until crumbly; drain and return to skillet. Stir in the seasoning mix and water; cook until the liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes.

On a greased 12-inch pizza pan layer 1 tortilla, the refried beans, 1/2 cup of the ripe olives, 1 tortilla, the beef mixture, 1/2 cup of the cheese. Top with the remaining tortilla.

Cover with aluminum foil and bake 15 minutes. Remove the foil and sprinkle the remaining 1 cup cheese over the top. Bake, uncovered for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 cup ripe olives.

Cut into 6 wedges. Serve with salsa and sour cream. Makes 6 servings.
