Shredded Beef Tostada

Do you ever crave Mexican food?

I do, often!  Just last night I was craving a shredded beef tostada.

 I’m very lucky, where I live there are many great Mexican restaurants close by.  But this  craving yesterday was one of those days when you don’t feel like getting out of your P.J’s. kinda day! {Do you ever have those days?} Then I remembered, the last time I made this shredded beef recipe, I made a double batch just for times like this.  And “well la” I was on my way to satisfy my Mexican food craving.

I love the crunchy texture of freshly fried hot from the oil tortilla.  Most of the time I eat at least 3 tortillas before I ever start assembling the tostadas.  They are just so good!

Recipe type: Shredded beef Tostada
  • Shredded Beef Recipe
  • Vegetable Oil for frying
  • 6 Corn Tortillas
  • ¼ head Shredded Iceberg Lettuce
  • 1 Chopped Tomatoes
  • I Avocado diced
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mexican Blend Cheese {or your favorite cheese}
  • ¼ Cup Sour Cream
  • A Handful of Cilantro leaves {optional}
  1. To fry tortillas, pour enough oil into a large skillet so there is a 2 inch depth of oil. Heat oil to 375 degrees. Fry tortillas one at a time until light golden brown in color. Place cooked tortilla on a plate lined with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
  2. To assemble Tostadas, Place a small amount of sour cream down {this make the shredded beef stay put a little better on the tortilla} on the cooked tortillas, top the sour cream with shredded beef. Next, place the lettuce over the beef, top the lettuce with the avocado and tomato. Then top with the shredded cheese, sour cream and cilantro.

Enjoy this shredded beef tostada with a Margarita or an ice cold beer!
