Not like you need a reason to cook up some Mexican grub, but Cinco de Mayo is this week. It gives you the perfect excuse to whip up a batch of tacos. Or better yet, get a little creative with Mexican flavours – beans, tomatillos, masa harina, poblano, or even tamarind.
Let’s be real with one another – we’ve all had our fill of tacos from a box. Time to put our grown-up pants on and throw something different into the mix. Perhaps you could make some tostadas?
“What’s a tostada,” you ask?
Think of it as a flat taco, but with a classier presentation. Not to mention, they’re pretty quick to whip up. We all need a variety of speedy weeknight meals in our back pockets, amiright?!
The topping options are limitless and you can gussy them up in any fashion. I’ve been crushing on the black bean and chorizo combo, myself. Add a generous sprinkle of queso, avocado, and a sprig or two of cilantro and we’re in business.
And no pre-made taco seasoning in sight!
