Jeff was out of town all day yesterday and asked, er demanded, that dinner be ready when he got home at 6. So at about 5:30, I looked in our fridge to find some dinner inspiration and ultimately, decided to make tostadas! To those of you who know me, this probably isn’t a huge surprise, since I pretty much always make Mexican food when I have free reign of the kitchen!
I experimented a bit by frying just some refrieds and cheddar cheese in between two corn tortillas before adding more toppings and baking the entire tostada for about 5 minutes. Not gonna lie, this is a pretty filling meal–so come hungry!
PS–I just made a little more of this salsa and it was the perfect addition to the tostadas!
