Beef Tostadas

Hi guys, this is a recipe that I have posted before but now there is a video up on my channel Ruthycancook for it, so check check it out and while you are there hit that subscribe button.

This is a great and easy dinner that is very interchangeable with its ingredients.   You can change out the ground beef and use turkey or chicken.  You can also leave the meat out and make it vegetarian.   This is also an inexpensive meal to make and your bucks stretches if you are feeding a family of 4 or more.



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.
