Never heard of radishes on toatadas.
I love cooking and your tab that deals with a budget and gluten free recipes have been really helpful when thinking of meals for my little brother. We made the Chipotle Beam Tostadas for dinner and he loved them. Thank you!
This turns into a super easy weeknight meal – I soak dry beans overnight (I used pinto as recommended but I’m sure almost any kind would work, maybe not kidney due to cooking recommendations); tossed the beans in a slow cooker with onion, garlic, salt in the morning before work; cooked on low all day. When I got home they made perfect “refried” beans as described in the recipe. I’ve never been able to find Cotija cheese around here but Queso Fresco was great in its place. Also had no chipotle tabasco but chipotle chili powder seemed fine in its place. Anyways, it was great and easy. Thanks! :)
I have taken to making tostadas with cumin and chili laced lentils. And I just bake the tortillas instead of frying. GOOOOOD. I must say I am jealous of those fried tortillas up there…I just couldn’t though!
I have tried this recipe with black beans instead of pinto beans. It was delicious!!!
You mentioned using Grapeseed oil and that it is hard to find. Ross stores and also TJ Max usually has it. They also carry alot of other hard to find items at very reasonable prices.
I’ll never buy refried beans again! Also, for something different, ricotta cheese adds a nice sweetness to the bite of the radishes and spice of the tobasco.
