Mexican Pizza {Taco Bell}

122

This is a copycat recipe of Taco Bell’s Mexican Pizza they serve. That was always a favorite of mine when I was younger and frequented that fast food chain. These are quite tasty and much healthier than the “real” version. It’s fairly simple to put together and definitely a crowd pleaser!

This crispy fried chicken sandwich recipe is better than Chik-Fil-A, Popeye's or McDonald's! The chicken breast is brined in pickle juice, breaded with flavorful seasonings, fried until golden brown, and then piled on a toasted brioche bun with lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayonnaise. Serve the sandwich with a side of waffle fries and homemade Chik-Fil-A sauce for dipping!
