Recipe by Silent Rain
A favorite family recipe I created many years ago. I thought I would post it to share with you all. If after you let the sauce simmer and feel you need to, add salt to taste but it is up to your discretion. Please go lightly on the salt!...The pork sausage is already seasoned. We enjoyed it just the way it is. My family used all the optional toppings! I hope you enjoy it as much as we have. :) We sometimes put cooked beans between the tostada and the pork sauce and then finish with the other toppings. If large tortillas are not available, make 6-8 tostadas using the smaller tortillas.
- 1 lb bob evans original pork sausage, in a roll
- 1 cup chopped onion
- 1 (8 ounce) jar taco sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder (to taste)
- cooking oil
- 4 corn tortillas (I used flour) or 4 flour tortillas, about 7-inch diameter (I used flour)
- 3 -4 cups shredded lettuce
- cooked leftover great northern bean (if using refried beans please watch sodium content. I used the leftover northern beans) (optional)
- 1⁄2-1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese (optional) or 1⁄2-1 cup cheddar cheese (optional)
- 1 medium size tomatoes, cut into thin wedges (optional) or 1 medium diced onion (optional)
- 1⁄2-1 cup sour cream
- sliced black olives (optional)
- additional taco sauce (optional)
