    Charles Lieberman's Note:

    This might be good for a Cinco de Mayo celebration (or whenever, I'm not one to judge). I got it from work and stripped the brand names.

      I substituted cooked, shredded chicken for the beef but otherwise followed the recipe. Quick prep time and very good!

      A fast, tasty way to make dinner (or lunch, I'm not one to judge). I made a few changes -- adding a tablespoon of shredded cheese on top the refried beans before baking, and cooking the beef with low-sodium taco seasoning rather than the salsa. I also used fewer chopped green chiles since I had to make my dinner kid-friendly. I really liked baking the tostada shells; it really made them taste restaurant-style. Thanks, Charles, for sharing!
