Beef Tostadas

As you may have noticed, I love all Mexican food. This is an easy recipe that has made it into our regular lineup. You can use any kind of meat and toppings you like, but this is how I did it most recently and it was oh so tasty!

Beef Tostadas
1 small beef roast
1 packet taco seasoning
corn tortillas (about 2 per person)
refried beans
shredded cheese
shredded lettuce
diced tomatoes
sour cream
taco sauce or salsa

Place roast in crock pot and cover with salsa. Sprinkle with taco seasoning (use as little or much as you like). Cook on low for 8 hours. Once meat is cooked, shred with two forks. Twenty minutes before dinner place tortillas on cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes, until crispy. Sprinkle tortillas with salt.While tortillas are baking, heat beans and prep toppings. Top each tortilla with beans, meat, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream, and salsa. Enjoy!
In the morning put your meat in the crockpot. Don't forget the liner, it makes clean up a cinch!
Once the meat is done, shred it with two forks.
Bake the tortillas on a cookie sheet until they are crispy and the edges start to curl.
Top with all your favorite toppings!
