These aren't going to win any awards for creativity or looks, but they do get lunch on the table in a hurry and are pretty healthy.
The tostada above is one I made for the girls for their lunch recently. I didn't take a picture of mine (I swear I thought I did), but it was much more interesting than this one. I had black beans, onion, tomato, bean sprouts, salsa and a little sour cream.
But, I snuck a bite of one of these and they were VERY good. I might have had to make another one to replace the one I took a bite of.... :)
The Nitty Gritty:
Bake a 6 inch corn tortilla in a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until crisp.
Add your toppings and enjoy!
Wasn't that an amazing recipe??
The good news is that I make the tostadas in advance and then send the toppings with my husband for lunch so he can just heat up the toppings he wants warm and have these for lunch at work.
I know you can buy pre made tostada shells, but these taste so much better!
The topping choices can be limitless. Refried beans, beans, taco meat, cheese, onion, tomato, avocado, etc.
Not only are they quick and easy, they are darn tasty too!
