We LOVE tostadas all layered up with meat & veggies! They are super easy to make for dinner. These tostadas are on the spicy side with hot chorizo, jalapeno's & hot sauce but you can adjust to your liking. A fun family style everyone can put on what they like. You can make them vegetarian with just the beans & veggies. Anyway is the best way!

    Now, layer all the other goodies....I go with cheese first because I want it to melt into the meat. Then, lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, olives, a little more cheese and then some hot sauce.

    Don't let these fool you. They are very filling and will serve as a meal. At least they do in our house. Now my husband has a couple of them but I am good with just one. Splurge and get some Mexican Sangria (non-alcoholic) or Mexican pop from your local Mexican restaurant...always fun to serve with it.
