Soul Food Nacho Pizza
4 Naan (Tandoori Indian Bread)

1 6oz. can tomato paste
3/4 cup water
1 (1.25 ounce) package taco seasoning mix, divided
1 teaspoon chili powder, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper, or to taste
1 (16 ounce) can fat-free refried beans
1/3 cup salsa
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 pound ground beef
4 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
10 Tortilla Chips, broken
Shredded lettuce
2 Roma Tomatoes, chopped
½ C white queso
Sliced Olives

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
In a bowl, combine tomato paste, water, and 3/4 of the package of taco seasoning mix. Stir in chili powder and cayenne pepper; set aside. In another bowl, mix refried beans, salsa, and onion; set aside. In a large skillet, cook ground beef until evenly brown; drain excess fat. Season with the remaining 1/4 package of taco seasoning and a small amount of water. Simmer a few minutes, then remove from heat.

Spread a layer of the bean mixture on the naan, then a layer of the tomato mixture. Sprinkle with seasoned beef and top with cheddar cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until naan is golden brown and cheese is melted. Take out of the oven and top with shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced olives, tortilla chips and white queso.
