Tostadas for a Quick Dinner
When I want a meal in a hurry I go with Tostadas.
Ingredients: Flour or Corn Tortillas
1 small can of refried beans
1/2 C grated cheddar cheese (or cheese of your choice)
1 C of lettuce mix
1 small diced tomato
Serves 1 or 2 adults
First grate the cheese and dice the tomato. Put the beans in a saucepan with a few tablespoons of water and heat up slowly, stirring from time to time so they don't burn to the bottom.
Fry the tortillas flat in a bit of cooking oil. Drain on paper towels. I like mine crispy.
Smooth the beans over the tortilla. Sprinkle with cheese so that it melts a bit over the hot beans. Add some lettuce mix and the tomatoes. Serve while warm. Salt to taste.
Optional: Salsa and/or Cilantro and/or sour cream
Optional: Pre-cooked ground beef
