Food Recipe | Easy Ground Beef Tostada Recipe – So good! At first, I was a little worried about the spiciness of the meat/potato combo, but by the time you assemble the tostado with (in our case refried beans), lettuce, tomato, avocado, cheese, and sour cream, you don’t even notice the heat … just that lovely lovely chipolte smokiness. YYUUMMM! Who would’ve though potatoes would work SO well on a tostado???? Can’t thank you enough for recipe! Oh – side note we also cut recipe in half and there was more than enough for 4 people. Enjoy! All you need with this wonderful recipe is a cold beer and a fresh fruit salad for a taste and temperature contrast.
