What is a tostada?
Tostada is a Spanish word that means “toasted” and usually refers to a flat or bowl-shaped tortilla that is deep-fried or toasted. Think of it as an open-faced taco.
How to make Chicken Sausage Fajita-Style Tostadas:
Start by making the tostada shells. Tostada shells are generally found in the international aisle of your grocery store, but they’re super easy to make yourself and a great way to use leftover corn tortillas.
Here’s all you do:
- Place corn tortillas on a baking sheet.
- Spray both sides with cooking spray.
- Bake 5 minutes on the first side.
- Flip, then bake 4-5 minutes on the second side. Keep an eye on them! They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
- You could also fry them, but baking is a much healthier method.
- Then, cook onions, bell peppers and the al fresco® Mild Mexican Style Chicken Sausage.
- Combine fat-free refried beans with your favorite salsa and spread some over the tostadas.
- Top with the chicken sausage fajita combination.
- Add sour cream…
- Then top with all the stuff as desired!
- Cilantro sprigs
- A squeeze of lime juice…
A totally easy, super delicious, family-friendly taco night dinner!
