Breakfast Tostadas a la Mexicana

January 26, 2018

Our weekday mornings have gone through a transformation.  We are enjoying full breakfast meals in half the time it would take to prepare a full spread.  Last week, I made some delicious sopes with scrambled egg, chorizo and HERDEZ™ Instant Refried Beans. My family loved them!

This week, we moved on to breakfast tostadas.  These crunchy tostadas are different from the sopes because they re made “a la Mexicana” style with serrano chiles, sauteed onion and roma tomatoes.  As the base, I used HERDEZ™ Instant Refried Beans, and topped everything with HERDEZ® Guacamole Salsa, queso fresco, cilantro and a few radishes for a finishing crunch.

With time-savers such as the Herdez Brand products, you don’t skimp on tradition and flavor.  You get the real deal if you don’t have time to make traditional salsa and refried beans from scratch.

The new instant refried beans can be found in the bean isle at your local grocery store, and for my Texas friends, you can now find them at H-E-B.

Start making your full breakfast spreads on weekdays.  You will love the ease of HERDEZ Brand products in your new prep routine.  Did I tell you it only takes five minutes to prepare these delicious and spreadable beans.  Yes!  it’s that quick!

So get your creativity going because the possibilities are endless when it comes to spreadable refried beans.  From kid-friendly molletes, to tortas, tacos and tortilla chips.  There are so many ideas to keep your menu fun and enticing for everyone.
