Picadillo Tostadas {recipe}


1 Pkg of ground meat {beef or turkey, we've used both and it makes no difference} -about 1.5 lbs
1 Tbsp of garlic salt
1 Tbsp of black ground pepper
1/2 Tsp of minced garlic
1/2 Medium sized yellow onion
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Zucchini
1 Medium size potato
1 Can of tomato sauce


1.- Place meat on a plate and add ground pepper and garlic salt. Combine the meat as if you were kneading dough, to get all the ingredients incorporated. Dice onion, zucchini and potato.

2.- Place a deep skillet (make sure you have a lid for it) on medium heat add the olive oil give it a minute or two and add diced onion, garlic, potato cook for about 5 minutes then add meat. Brown the meat with all the vegetables.

3.-  After about 8 minutes of stirring constantly add the tomato sauce and combine all the ingredients. Cover and cook for about 10 - 15 minutes on medium - low heat.

For the tostadas you will need to use refried beans, I'd say about 2 cups of refried beans would be enough. I have a recipe for refried beans here on Stroller Adventures.


1.- Spread 1 Tbsp of refried beans directly onto a plain tostada.

2.- Add picadillo {enough to cover the tostada}.  Top the picadillo off in this order lettuce, salsa, sour cream and sprinkle cotija cheese and some cilantro leaves.

You can also add some slices of fresh radishes and avocado.
