“About five years ago, I put on a luncheon for the PTA. and made tostados. I figured on two tostados per person – but when I started serving, three men had six each and several of the ladies had three each, and I had to scramble around in the back of the refrigerator to find more ingredients!”

Ingredients

6 corn tortillas
Oil
1 cup refried beans
1 to 1-1/2 cups thinly sliced cooked chicken, pork, or beef
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Chopped tomatoes
Chopped onions
Shredded lettuce
Sliced black olives (optional)
Sour cream (optional)
1 ripe avocado, peeled and sliced

Instructions

Fry the tortillas one at a time in hot oil until crisp. Drain on paper towels. Spread a thin layer of beans on each tortilla. Top with some meat and cheese. Place in hot oven for a minute or two, until cheese melts. Remove and top with remaining ingredients. Serve with Salsa Picante (see recipe).
