Tostadas With Chorizo

Tostadas With Chorizo created by Starrynews

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.

    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.

    Made and reviewed for Aussie Recipe Swap # 31. I used 2 chorizo sausages (about 250gm) and removed the meat from the casing. I also added a generous blob of sour cream and scattered over jalapeno peppers for a bit of extra bite. I enjoyed the crunch from the fried tortilla, but found the bean mixture a little dryish, I think a little salsa would be a nice addition. Thanks for sharing.

    We love chorizo, it gives the beans a great background flavor in these tostadas. I think next time we would double it to make that flavor more prominent. I baked these to make them healthier. Thanks for sharing your creation!
