Tostadas with homemade Mexcian refried beans are a super easy and satisfying weekday meal especially if you already have the beans on hand. I make a pound (dry) of refried beans when I make them and freeze up small portions.
2 tostada shells (you can buy them at the market or deep fry a couple of corn tortillas until crisp)
~3/4 cup homemade Mexican refried beans (or canned refried beans)
~1/2 cup lettuce shredded
~1/4 cup cheddar cheese
~1/4 cup sour cream
Green salsa & roasted red salsa (we had fresh salsas leftover from Cindo de Mayo that we got at Vallarta Supermarket, yum!, but any salsas will be good)
~1/4 cup cilantro chopped
- Toast the tostada shells in the toaster oven or toaster for a couple of minutes to make sure they are light and crunchy.
- Heat up the beans.
- Top the tostada shells with beans, shredded lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsas, and cilantro!
