I knew that this would happen.....it's been over a week since my last post!! Not only did the kids start school but I started another semester of school as well. I told myself that busyness would not keep me from posting and sad to say it has. However, it will not keep me out of my kitchen. These days dinner has to be kept simple. I have to leave everything set up for Isabel or Prince Charming to just come home and warm a few things up. Well, one of my favorite go to meals for busy nights are these quick and easy tostadas.
For the record....Isabel, my 16 year old is usually my photographer but since she was at school I took on this little photo session on my own. So, please excuse my amateur pictures.
Before I go on I wanted to give you a glimpse of what is consuming me right now............
Prokaryotes, Bacteria, Cell structure, fossil Succession.....it makes my head spin!!
Sometimes I am so tempted to just give in to take out and trust me I'm sure I will soon. But for now I'm hanging in there.
All you need is few ingredients:
Big can of Refried Beans (that's right...canned beans, there's no shame in it)
a few spices:
And a few toppings:
Salsa (yes, store bought...no shame in that either :))
Brown your meat, drain the fat....add your spices and stir.
Put your beans in a microwave safe bowl and warm them up for about 2 minutes.
Set up a little self serve area.....
And let the assembly begin.
This was so effortless that I also made an awesome and easy Agua de Melon.
