Black Bean and Beef Tostadas

When I think of Tostadas, I think of something difficult to eat. However, the crunchy yellow corn tostadas I found for this recipe were the perfect size, and made for an easy-to-eat, and easy to cook, dinner.

This might look like a lot of ingredients, but most are optional toppings for the Black Bean and Beef Tostadas I made, using this recipe from Taste of Home.

Super easy! On tostada shells layer:

1. Warmed refried beans.

2. Pepper jack cheese.

3. Mixture of browned lean ground beef, canned tomatoes with green chilies, and black beans.

4. Sour cream, lettuce, cilantro, jalapeΓ±os, etc.

These were great and came together in no time. I love these tostado shells – they make for an easy-to-assemble meal out of whatever ingredients you might have on hand, anytime.

My rating: 8/10

Book Review

This week I have been reading a new book called The Fault In Our Stars by John Green. I’ve really been enjoying it, even though I start crying almost every time I pick it up. Yet I keep coming back for more. It is raw and heart-wrenching, yet funny. The two cancer-ridden teenage main characters are likable, mature beyond their years, contemplating existentialist questions during their time together. Though I have about 60 pages left to read, so far I would definitely recommend this book. John Green is a talented writer.
