Homemade Tostadas

Spring is finally in the air, warmer weather, blue skies, sunshine and best of all, friend and family get-togethers. One of our favorite spring-time celebrations is Cinco de Mayo and one of my favorite Mexican foods is Tostadas.

Tostadas are the perfect, authentic meal for Cinco de Mayo, crispy shell, shredded meat and topped with all the delicious veggies, cheese and sauces. This year I made the most delicious Pulled Pork Tostadas using TortillaLand© Corn Tortillas. TortillaLand© Corn Tortillas are fresh corn tortillas found in the refrigerator section of your local Safeway store. These tortillas are by far the freshest and most authentic I have ever used. With only 5 simple ingredients, I know my family is getting all the flavor without the additives.

Fresh produce and meat make the dish irresistible and easy to assemble. I never leave the store without checking my Safeway Just 4 U app with loads of savings on all the items I shop for regularly.

Pulled Pork

Pork is such a versatile meat to cook with and can be used in a variety of ways. I love using my Instant Pot to make pulled pork, it is an easy hands off method to get the best results. A simple rub, pop into Instant Pot and you’ll be ready for your tostadas!

Spice Rub

If you do not have an Instant Pot, you can achieve the same pulled pork results by slow roasting in the oven, find the details in the notes at the bottom of the recipe.

Toppings

Besides a delicious fried corn shell and succulant pork, the toppings are just as important.

  • tomatoes
  • hot sauce
  • cilantro (I like to use flat leaf parsley)
  • lettuce
  • avocado
  • lime
  • guacamole: simple guacamole includes: avocados, salt, garlic, lime and a hint of cilantro or parley
  • Cotija cheese: a firm white cheese that is dry and salty, crumbles perfectly (of your favorite cheese – cheddar and queso also are good options)
