Our family loves taco pizza, and I have made so many versions of it. This recipe is like a deep-dish skillet pizza. It is a hearty meal and can be served straight out of the pan. —Pamela Shank, Parkersburg, West Virginia

  • 1/3 cup tortilla chips, crushed
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional toppings: Torn romaine, chopped tomatoes, sour cream, chopped onion, chopped cilantro and fried tortilla strips


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, 6-8 minutes, crumbling beef; drain. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in beans, salsa and taco seasoning; keep warm. Wipe pan clean.
  2. Prepare cornbread mix according to package directions; stir in crushed tortilla chips. Pour into skillet. Bake until set, 12-15 minutes.
