Pork Tostadas

These pork tostadas were seriously the perfect meal to use up all of that leftover pork. We thought they were especially delicious using the Mango Salsa from Costco. I think it was just the perfect blend of warm spices, sweet from the mango, cool from the avocado and queso fresco that really made this work. It was seriously so yummy. I’m so excited to make this again and I love that we were using mostly leftovers so not only was there not very much work to do, but it made meal planning super easy.

Is A Tostada Different Than Taco?

A tostada is like a taco, but flat.

It’s usually made with a fried corn tortilla, topped with refried beans, shredded cheese, salsa, and other toppings.

Are Black Beans Healthier Than Re fried Beans?

Refried beans usually consist of onion, cooked beans, seasonings, and a fat to fry them in—often lard.

Black beans, have no added fat or other seasonings.

Are Corn Tortillas Gluten Free?

Corn tortillas are made from a special type of corn meal which is naturally gluten free.

As long as corn tortillas are not contaminated with wheat products during the manufacturing process, corn tortillas are gluten free.
