Four B’s Tostadas

Tonight for Mitten Movie Night were getting spicy.  Crunchy tostadas get the 4 B’s treatment: beef, beans, blue cheese & buffalo sauce then cooling it down a little with some creamy ranch dressing.  A bold combination packed with tons of flavor.

For the movie we are watching The Nice Guys. Ryan Gosling?  Yes please! With dinner and the movie we’re having Sam Adam’s Octoberfest.  Now you might be asking yourself how on earth I think that these two go well together.  When researching what pairs well with Octoberfest I came across a great article from Serious Eats Beer Pairings: What to Eat with Oktoberfest BeersIt says that going ‘South of the Border’ is totally acceptable. Since this is a recipe I’ve had on my mind for awhile and we got a great deal on the beer at our beloved Costco I ran with it.  Now let’s get started by gathering your ingredients….

On the stove add ground beef, garlic powder, chili powder, seasoning salt and cumin.  Cook beef all the way through.  Add your refried beans to a microwave safe dish and heat for 3 minutes to warm them up.  Once your beef and beans are cooked it’s time to make the tostadas.  In a small pan add oil for frying.  Heat the oil up for 2-3 minutes.  When oil is heated use tongs to add tortillas into the pan.  Fry one tortilla at a time for 2 minutes each side. Set up a plate with paper towels next to the pan to put the tostadas on once they are cook.

When the tortillas are all cooked it’s as simple as setting up an assembly line.  Take the crispy (oh so good!) tostadas top with beans, seasoned beef, blue cheese and then drizzle with buffalo sauce and ranch to cool it off just a touch.

      Try it, it’s delicious! Even if I’m not frying them I will put them over the flame on my stove top to crisp them a little.
