Here’s a recipe that’s great anytime! Have everyone assemble their own tostadas, topping them with the condiments of their choice. This is definitely a meal in itself, with it’s crisp tortilla shell base, meat and bean mixture, shredded lettuce, cheese and an assortment of condiments for your family to pile on top. Here’s my version of California Tostadas for my March Monthly Menu Plan. Noel’s Kitchen Tips Menus creates Menu Ideas for Busy Moms (and Dads) that are quick, easy and fun for their family!
- 1 package Chorizo sausage, cooked and drained
- 1 28 ounce can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
