Tostadas With Chorizo

I love tostadas. And I used to be able to buy some brand of canned Refried Beans with Chorizo. Haven't been able to find them in years. So...I have come up with this.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 1/8 to 1/4-inch oil over medium high heat. Fry tortillas 30 seconds on each side to light golden, 1 tortilla at a time. Drain tortillas on paper towels or brown paper sack. Season with a little sea salt while hot.
  2. Saute chorizo in medium skillet over medium heat, breaking up the sausage into small pieces. When cooked, add the can of refried beans to the skillet to heat through. Mix chorizo and beans.
  3. Spread hot beans on tortillas and top with a handful of shredded cheese, shredded lettuce and diced tomato pieces.

This was so easy. My husband makes the best Italian sausage so substituted for the chorizo. Bought the tostadas at a local Mexican store, spread with the bean/sausage mixture then loaded them up with grated cheese, sour cream, salsa avocados & lettuce. Yummy ;) This will be one of my "go to" recipes when I'm at a loss for what to make. Thanks!

These were good. I had premade tostadas so saved me that step. Sour cream is must as another reviewer mentioned. The meat/bean mixture would also be wonderful on nachos with cheese melted in the broiler.
