Recipe - Pork Mince Tostada
Continuing down the route of maybe-not-so-authentic-but-quite-tasty Mexican dishes I stopped to make Tostadas. After what I can understand you can use most types of meat, and beans, to make Tostadas. Since I already had some pork mince in the fridge my choice was easy.
You could serve this dish already plated, or you could do it Taco style and have all the ingredients on in bowls etc the table and let people assemble your own.
If you do it a bit more stylish than what I did last night you could almost make mini-Tostadas to serve as starters for a Mexican themed dinner etc.
This is a dish you really can freestyle...
Ingredients (serves 2 - 4)
500g pork mince
1 large onion
300g - 500g jar of salsa (or homemade if you wish)
To serve (all optional)
Sliced pickled jalapenos
Spring onions, sliced
Heat the oil in a frying pan on a medium heat.
Add the mince and the onion and fry until cooked through and all the liquids have disappeared. Add the salsa, bring to a simmer and let simmer until most (or all) of the liquids have disappeared and the mixture has a texture you like.
Either quickly heat the tortillas in a frying pan or in a oven. Pile some mince mixture on each one then top with the toppings of your choice.
