  • 1Place Ground Meat Mix* and water in a saucepan. Cover and cook over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally; break up meat with a fork. Cover and cook 5 minutes longer. Drain off liquid. Meanwhile, spread one side of each tostado shell with refried beans; set aside. Shred cheese, place in a food storage bag. Add taco seasoning mix. Seal and shake vigorously to coat cheese.
