Authentic Mexican Recipes

Bean and Rice Tostada Recipe

6 flour or corn tortillas
1/2 cup cooking oil for frying
1 pint Progresso Tamale mexican rice
1 pint Progresso Tamale refried beans
2 11 oz cans corn, drained
4 cups shredded lettuce
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Accompaniment: salsa, guacamole, sour cream, diced tomatoes

Heat cooking oil over high heat in a small frying pan. Deep fry tortillas one at a time in the small frying pan. Drain tortillas on a paper towel. You can also use a deep fryer.

Spread each tortilla with a Tbsp or two of refried beans as a base. Add a layer of mexican rice. Add additional layers of corn, lettuce and cheese.

Top with salsa, guacamole, sour cream and tomatoes to taste.

Low Fat alternative:
Instead of frying the tortillas, spread cooking oil on the tortillas and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until crisp.
