Pulled Pork Tostadas Recipe

FacebookTwitterGoogle+PinterestShare

There’s just something about pulled pork that makes my husband’s heart swoon. He smokes a couple of Boston Butts on his smoker every few weekends that is absolutely the best I’ve ever tasted. Ever. But, I make a pork roast that yields pulled pork that comes a pretty close second to his smoked version. IF we have any leftovers, one way I love to use them is on these pulled pork tostadas.

So simple to just pull together for a quick weeknight supper or even a lunch, if you like.

I normally have the ingredients on hand, so once I have my pulled pork all ready, it just takes a few minutes to get these tostadas on the table.

 

They are so good, they really make me want to cook more than one pork roast just so I know I have plenty of pulled pork for these tostadas. There’s nothing wrong with that, is there?

Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • Canola oil
  • 6 corn or flour tortillas
  • salt
  • 1 (15-ounce) can refried beans
  • 4 cups pulled pork from pork roast
  • 2 cups salad greens
  • 8-12 ounces grated Monterrey Jack or cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup salsa
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 avocado, peeled and chopped or guacamole (optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat refried beans in a microwave safe bowl until completely warmed. Set aside.
  2. Pour about ⅛th to ¼th-inch of oil to a skillet over medium heat. Fry one tortilla at a time in the skillet, flipping once with tongs to brown both sides. Once browned, remove the tortilla to a cooling rack placed on top of paper towels to drain. Repeat until all tortillas have been cooked.
  3. Assemble each tostadas by spreading fried tortilla with refried beans, then adding pulled pork, salad greens, cheese, salsa, and sour cream. If using avocado, add it as well.

Enjoy!

    Awk! I’m so happy to find someone else that smokes an obnoxious amount of pork butt too! We smoke 2 or 3 a month also and then freeze in individual packs so dinner is EASY after work. Those tostados look yummy! I may have to try making them tonight! Thanks for sharing
