Our family loves food. More specifically, Mexican food. More specifically, beans. More specifically, tostadas.
Have you ever tried a tostada? It’s like a big, round corn chip. See?
You toast it in the oven, then cover it with refried beans, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, salsa, tomatoes, olives, lettuce, green onions, or whatever you feel like. Devour. Repeat. Repeat again if needed (usually is needed).
We had tostadas for New Year’s Eve. Forget the black-eyed peas and shrimp cocktails and wine. We’d rather have tostadas any day!
The unadulterated tostada shells, right out of the oven: hot and crispy. And greasy. Mmmm.
Tomatoes: one of the optional toppings. I’m not a fan of tomatoes, but they’re too pretty not to take a picture of.
Olives, another optional topping. What a hypocritical food blogger I am – I don’t like olives either. But they are photogenic; that’s why they’re on my blog.
The preparation of a perfect tostada.
Meet the perfect tostada.
Everyone likes them a little different. But we all enjoy them.
If you don’t believe that, look at the above picture.
And sometimes, tostadas are best with just beans and cheese.
The point is: however you dress up a tostada, it’ll still be a tostada.
Enjoy your tostada.
Happy New Year!
