Tostadas

Beans, cheese, and toppings are layered on crispy corn tortillas. Tostadas are a great frugal and easy recipe.

Tostadas are one of my go to quick and easy when I am tired or we are having a busy day. The great thing about them is they are customizable.

 

Pretty much anything you’d like on a taco would be great on a tostada. This is another post that is more method than recipe but I will share how I made them last night.

If you’re using canned or frozen from scratch refried beans and store bought tostada shells you can have supper on the table in about twenty minutes and for about 3 dollars.
