Tex-Mex Week is in full swing at Chez Peady and as you may already know, Monday’s Fajita Fiesta was fabulous.
In keeping with our theme, Tostada Tuesday was terrific.
Do you know what a tostada is? Have you ever had a tostada? Oh, you are in for a treat! Honestly, it is a thing of joy.
Here, let me just show you.
Water with lemon is the perfect accompaniment. It’s better with lime, but have you seen the price of limes?! Yikes!
Authentic Tostadas all the way from Mexico! Authenticity is always a tasty ingredient!
Chicken, baked on Monday, ready for Tuesday! That’s no pollo loco!
Roma tomatoes. Trust me. So good!
Freshly diced tomatoes (rough chop, will do!).
Romaine lettuce. Serrated edge knife. Happiness!
See how nice and thinly sliced the lettuce is? This is no time for giant hunks of Romaine.
Refried beans. Consider this the base or “glue” that holds all the yummy toppings in place! (You could also use guacamole, but I prefer to add that as a topping.)
Here is everything!
Thing 1 loves Tex-Mex Week. Can you tell?
Tostadas! Chipotle on the left. Plain on the right. Both scrumptious!
This was my Tostadas ‘n’ Things take 1. (Oh, yes! There were seconds.)
Thing one applying his refried beans.
Thing 2 made a bit of a Tostada Salad after her first one exploded.
This is the sign of a “hit”.
Can’t you almost taste it?
Look how pretty!
That’s Tostadas Tuesday, in a taco shell! (Get it? Like nutshell.. but because it’s Tex-Mex Week I said “taco” instead of “nut”.. see? Shall I over explain it some more? I’m sorry. I’ll just stop talking now.)
It is an easy, delicious meal and can be customized to individual tastes. I love that Thing 1 & Thing 2 can make their own. Kids make pretty good choices when left to their own devices. They can be as creative as they wish! Don’t you just love that?
Tell me, will you give Tostadas a try? I hope you will.
And now, as promised, I give you your bonus song*.
*Okay. Okay. It’s a mind worm. I admit it, but my Things were just playing it and it seemed fitting!
