Steak Tostadas

As our time here in Nevada is winding down, we are trying to power through our food in the freezer, fridge, and cupboards to minimize what we need to move or give away. Today our main dish was steak and I had to find a way to whip that up into something interesting. I sifted through the cupboards and fridge and found the makings for some tasty tostadas!

Originally, I did take a photo of the finished product, but it didn't look appetizing at all even though it tasted great. So I drew a picture instead using Publisher (it was fun) so as to not turn you off immediately from a photo that looks gross. Looks aren't everything!

Ingredients/layers:

sour cream
shredded cheddar cheese
sweet corn
enchilada sauce (or salsa but we found out it's much better with enchilada sauce)
steak or chicken (optional)
refried beans (any kind) (or just regular beans...)
Tostada (or taco shell and you could just load it up with stuff!)

Delicious! It was a little heavy and messy but so yummy!

Directions:

All I did was heat up the ingredients (Andy grilled the steak and I cut it up), smeared, drizzled, and sprinkled it on, then heated it in the oven for 5 minutes at 400 degrees to melt the cheese.

Enoy!
