Tonight for Mitten Movie Night we’re getting spicy.

What beer pairs well with spicy tostadas?

The beer: Sam Adam’s Octoberfest.

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.

What movie pairs well with Four B’s Tostadas and Octoberfest?

For the movie, we are watching The Nice Guys. Ryan Gosling?  Yes please!

How to make Four B’s Tostadas:

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 cooked.

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.

You could always take this fiesta up a few notches and use my Double Batch Smashed Beans or homemade rice for this meal.

Serve with tomatoes, green olives, lettuce, sour cream and a rice dish on the side.

And here you are…..
