Chorizo Tostadas

Shelly Saxell


I got this recipe from my sister-in-law. Every time she use to visit she would make it. My family really loves it. One day she was in my kitchen and she said, "hey Shelly, why don't you learn to make this & she showed me how?" I did and the rest is history. Thanks Anna we all love the recipe.
