Easy Tostadas and Instant Guacamole

October 23, 2010

Tostadas with Daiya cheese, instant guacamole, and tomatoes

Dinner tonight was very uninspired, and uses Daiya cheese again. I swear I don’t eat it that often, but this week I seem to. Once my Organic Acres General Store order comes I’ll have the raw cashews I need to make cheese, then you’ll see! (Of course I have to finalize and PLACE the order first!

Instant Guacamole Ingredients:

  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted
  • dash of lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tsp minced garlic from a jar (or 2 cloves fresh garlic chopped)

Directions:

  • Mash ingredients together and use anywhere you want guacamole, like on Easy Tostadas!

Easy Tostadas Ingredients:

  • Corn Tostadas (don’t forget to check if they’re made with soybean oil!)
  • Cheese (Diaya cheddar, mozzarella, or both!)
  • Any of your favorite toppings such as
    Re-fried Beans
    Guacamole
    Salsa
    Fresh tomato
    Sliced olives
    Corn

Directions:

  • Turn oven on to 350* (It won’t need to preheat all the way, but it will get warm while we put together the tostadas)
  • Optional: Spread re-fried beans on tostada before putting the cheese on
  • Spread desired amount of cheese on each tostada shell
  • Put the tostada shells on a cookie sheet in the oven for about 10 minutes to let the cheese melt
  • Remove from the oven, add your desired toppings, and enjoy!

I usually eat about 3 tostadas for a meal, my husband usually eats 4. He doesn’t like guacamole, so a single recipe of Instant Guacamole works perfectly for my 3.  He likes salsa and I don’t usually, so it works out. Here are some variations we like:

This one has the re-fried beans under the cheese, and is topped with salsa (Instant Mexican Pizza!)
