Chicken fajitas are always a win in my book, but never had I tried tostadas before.
Steven wanted to try them, and it was something I thought was boring and fruitless in the name of culinary variety.
Tacos are just fine right?
Wrong.
Tostadas completely exceeded my expectations. It’s like a miniature taco pizza with a pile of delicious toppings delicately balanced on top of a satisfying crispy tortilla.
This is a relatively simple recipe, made easier by using canned black beans and instant whole-grain rice.
