        1 – 8.5 Oz. Pizza Crust Mix
        Hand full of Original Fritos
        1 - 10 Oz. Can Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies (Mild)
        1 Lb. 80-20 or 85-15 Organic Ground Beef
        2 Fresh Avocados
        1 Pkg. Guacamole seasoning mix
        1 Pkg. Taco Seasoning mix
        2 Cups. Finely Shredded Cheese (Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Queso Quesadilla and Asadero cheeses
        1 Sweet Onion, diced (organic)
        5 Garlic Cloves, minced (organic)

Condiments: Sour Cream, Taco Sauce, Jalapeno Slices, Diced Green Onions, Sliced Black Olives, Tomato chunks.

Directions: Fire up BGE. Note: If browning hamburger on grill do not bring to full temperature until setting up for indirect cooking. Prepare your favorite Pizza Dough; in this case add ½ Cup hot water to a Pillsbury base with Fritos crushed and added to the dough.  Brown hamburger with garlic and onions, add taco seasoning and finish to 90% done, drain off grease (if necessary) and set aside. Set up Egg to Indirect (Perfect Pizza Set up = Plate setter legs down, pizza stone in place, temperature 500 degrees (600 max). Layer ingredients: Guacamole, Meat, Diced Tomatoes and Chilies, Mexican Cheese Blend and then place on Pizza Stone and cook for 10-13 minutes, lid down, remove, slice & serve. 

This recipe makes two (2) 12" pizzas, using two Emile Henry Flame Top Pizza stones that was NO PROBLEM; cooked at 550 degrees tonight in about ten (10) minutes.
