Ground Beef Tostadas

Ever since I can remember it has always been “Tostada Tuesday” instead of “Taco Tuesday” in our household. My mom used to make these for us all the time – it was her “healthy” spin on the Taco Bell Mexican Pizza. These tostadas can be easily adapted for little humans or picky husbands – I prefer spicy, Shane not so much. Shane loves to top his with salsa verde!


  • 4 tostadas (linked the ones we use)
  • 1lb of ground beef
  • 1 white onion (chopped)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1 can of refried beans
  • sharp cheddar
  • jalapenos
  • optional: salsa verde


  1. preheat over to BROIL
  2. combine ground beef, chopped onion, and taco seasoning into a medium skillet and cook until beef is browned
  3. while the ground beef is cooking – prepare your base by laying out 4 tostadas on a baking sheet
  4. then, evenly spread the refried beans on each tostada – I completely cover the base of the tostada in bean but this is a personal preference
  5. once the ground beef is cooked – scoop about 1/2 cup on top of the refried beans
  6. next, sprinkle sharp cheddar on top of each tostada – again this is a personal preference of how much cheese – I used about a 1/4 cup on each tostada
  7. optional: top with jalapenos
  8. place baking sheet in oven for about 2-4 minutes or until cheese is completely melted (I usually wait until cheese is a little bit brown and crispy on top)
  9. lastly, top with salsa verde
  10. enjoy!

XO, brm.
