Mealthy Tip

If you want additional healthy vegetarian options, try avocados or sautéed vegetables. They work great and everyone loves them - vegetarian or not! You can mash black beans or white beans instead of using refried beans. Shredded pork or steak can be used in place of the shredded chicken. Cotija cheese can be used in place of the queso fresco. Sprinkle chopped jalapeño pepper over the tostada for some heat.

I love tostadas, they are definitely one of my favorite things eat and they are so easy to make. This is recipe is nice and simple to follow. I would certainly suggest adding Guacamole, that is MUST in my tostadas.

I made vegan tostadas using roasted red pepper hummus and sautéed zucchini. So good. Grapeseed oil was perfect for frying these up!

Great tasting Mexican tostadas! I didn't use the mushrooms though. I also used rotisserie chicken. Definitely one of my favorite quick and easy weeknight meals.

Avocados made these vegetarian tostadas taste amazing. Lots of crema, lots of cheese. I tried the tortillas in vegetable oil because that's all I had. Next time I'll have to try frying with grapeseed oil.
