Mexican Tostadas

Tostadas seem like they happen accidently. Why you may ask? Tostadas are a hard shell with taco fixings. I think one night someone burn the taco shell and now we have Tostadas. I'm I the only one who things this? Here is my family recipe:




  1. Tostadas shells
  2. 15 ounce Refried beans
  3. 1 pd Taco meat ground beef or turkey
  4. Grated Cheese
  5. Lettuce
  6. Tomatoes
  7. Sour Cream
  8. guacamole
  9. Fresh Salsa

How to prepare a Tostadas:

Cook the ground meat. Warm up the refried beans. Grated the cheese. Cut up all the veggie to be able to place them on top of the tostadas shell. Place tostadas on a plate. Layer the tostadas with refried beans, taco meat, grated cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, guacamole and fresh salsa. Sever Hot.

Hopefully a family favorite of mine will become a family favorite in your home. Enjoy!
