I had the most yummy tostadas and rice tonight! I learned to make this meal from my friend that I invited over for dinner this evening. For the tostada shell, I bought soft corn tortillas and fried them in a pan of canola oil until they hardened. Then we mashed up some canned pinto beans with a mashed potato masher. I made some homemade authentic Mexican salsa and topped it with lettuce and cheese. YUM!
I made some mexican rice to go with it. I just cooked some onions in oil, then browned the rice a little. Then added 2 cups of chicken broth and one small can of tomato sauce. Bring to boil and simmer 20 minutes. Bueno!
This is my favorite salsa. I had posted a recipe on how to make it last year. It really does give any Mexican meal that perfect little kick. Authentic Mexican Salsa Recipe (I used a food processor instead of a blender this time, I like the chunky texture the processor gives it.)
Sorry the pics don't look very appetizing tonight, the lighting in the kitchen was horrible. I need to remember to turn the light above the table off for them to turn out better.
