I love all Mexican foods….tacos, tostadas, enchiladas, nachos…..well, you get the picture.
These days, I’m always coming up with healthy ways to bring Mexican food into our weekly menu. One night, I decided to make tostadas. I had leftover pork tenderloin in my fridge and thought I would use that as a starting point.
Here’s how I turned leftover pork into delicious pork tostadas:
Step 1: Slice leftover pork very thin and into bite-sized pieces. But really, any meat will work here and I’ve since made these with chicken and steak and they’ve turned out equally great.
Step 2: Sauté your meat in olive oil and season with taco seasoning. I make my own taco seasoning for this but you can utilize any taco seasoning packet that you have on hand, preferably low sodium and made with real ingredients.
Step 3: While the meat is cooking, slice the peppers and onions and sauté them with a bit of taco seasoning.
Step 4: Toast the corn tortillas in a clean frying pan until crunchy. This will take a few minutes per side. It is very important that they are toasted until crunchy or else they will be tough to eat.
Step 5: Put your tostadas together. Start with the tortillas and then add peppers and onions and pork. Top with salsa, a dollop of non-fat Greek yogurt and shredded mexican cheese.
Step 6: Enjoy!
I’d love to hear if you try these!
