We start with Tropical Corn Tortillas turned into crispy tostadas, which will serve as the base for a layer of refried beans, delicious grilled seasoned steak, cooked onion and peppers, then topped with Tropical Queso Fresco Mexicano, Tropical Crema Mexicana, lettuce, and avocado.

You can choose the meat you prefer, but we recommend skirt steak or sirloin. Use adobo to season then grill it. This Steak and Cheese Tostadas recipe uses red or green bell peppers, but you can use jalapeño or serrano peppers if you prefer spicy, as well as the sauce of your choice. Of course, you can’t miss Queso Fresco and Crema on any tostada ever!

Everyone can be part of the preparation turning tostada night into a fun family activity. Enjoy!
