Tostadas – The Adult Taco!

Posted by on Apr 9, 2012 in Dinners, Recipes | 1 comment

Tostadas are the perfect meal…fast, fresh and delicious. They are like tacos, only better! I like to think of them as the “adult version of a taco”….and extremely versatile.

If you’re making this meal for a vegetarian, just omit the chicken, and use the vegetarian variety of refried beans. If you want to spice is up, you can either add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper to the bean mixture, or add jalapeno peppers to the beans. Or if your not a big fan of chicken, you can substitute the chicken for cooked shrimp or steak. All are so delicious.

This recipe starts by quickly baking the shells with a tasty bean mixture…this gives the tostadas a perfect crunch and the perfect temperature. PS – kids like them too!
