Hi guys, here is a quick and simple recipe that you will love. I had some ground beef that I wan’t sure what to do with, so I came up with this recipe.
You can use ground chicken or turkey as a substitute for the beef. You can also not put any meat and make this a vegetarian tostada. This is some that is also easy to make after work in less than 30 minutes.
I hope you try and let me know what you think.
2 lbs. ground beef
1 package of tostada shells
2 packs of sazon
1 ½ tsp. adobo
1 ½ tsp. garlic powder
1 ½ tsp. onion powder
3 to 4 tbsp. safrito
Salt and pepper to taste
1 can or homemade refried beans
1 to 2 cups of cheese (I used Chihuahua cheese)
In a medium sauce pan cook the ground beef and about half way through the cooking process add in all of the seasonings and stir to they are incorporated. Finish cooking the beef until no longer pink. Drain any access fat off the meat and put back into pan.
If using can refried bean heat them in a pot until warmed through. If you want homemade refried bean check out my recipe on that.
Assemble the tostada as follows – layer of refried beans, then the ground beef, cheese, lettuce, tomato and sour cream, and avocado.
