Tostada Tuesday! Ole'! OK, this is going to be a delicious way to try out my new ground beef substitute. It was really good on its own (or so I think), but how will it hold up in a recipe? The real test will be later on to see if it holds up in chili, but for now, we're going with tostadas!
ground beef substitute of choice (I used 1/4 of Beef Substitute)
1/4 medium onion
1 15 oz. can refried black beans
1 C cooked rice
shredded cheddar or Mexican blend cheese
Brown beef substitute with onion. Add taco seasoning and cook. Heat oil in a heavy skillet. Fry tortillas in oil, about 20 seconds on each side. (Or, if you're tragically bad at frying, like a certain blogger, brown them on the griddle instead.) Drain on a paper towel. Load the tortilla with your favorite toppings.
Adapted from this recipe.
So good. It still doesn't taste exactly like the pre-packaged beef substitutes or as close to beef as my husband prefers, but man this is good. It's pretty much like beans, lentils and rice on a tostada with toppings. But I love it. Delicious.
