Today was a day to mix comfort, warming foods with the fresh and bright flavors of summer. Sure I could have made pie….
Shoot. I should have made pie!
No matter, this is better than pie. Chocolate for lunch anyone? Oh yeah baby!
Enter Tostadas – which I love.
Essentially, tostadas are the perfect platform for just about any tasty topping. These chocolate beans are warm, spicy and almost creamy. There’s a kind of earthiness to them. Top the whole dang thing off with the bright juicy flavors of peach and refreshing mint. I can guarantee you won’t be thinking about pie. If you make your own tostadas, you can avoid the deep frying oil too. If you’d like to make your own, bake tortillas in the oven at 375 F for 10 minutes or so. They turn out perfectly crisp without the rancid vegetable oil.
