behold the tostada. holy deliciousness!
baked corn tortillas. these are new to us.
crispy and crunchy and the best holder of Mexican goodness, quite literally.
so here’s to a new take on our weekly taco habit. y’all with me?
8 corn tortillas, small round
1 yellow onion, diced
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 lb ground beef
3 T taco seasoning
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup cheddar cheese
2 cups lettuce, topping
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place tortillas on baking sheet and bake 12-15 minutes or until golden brown; flipping halfway through.
Heat small amount of oil in skillet; saute onions and peppers just until translucent. Add ground beef and cook until browned. Add taco seasoning and 1/4 cup water, and stir until incorporated and liquid reduces. Add frozen corn and cook until warmed.
Serve tostada topped with beef mixture, cheese, lettuce, and salsa. Enjoy!
