Beer Braised Chorizo Tostada's

Pin It
I am so excited to be guest posting today for Carrie over at Bakeaholic Mama. It was back in January that Carrie guest posted for me here on A Healthy Jalapeño for her very FIRST guest post so I am happy that I finally get to return the favor. 
Carrie and I talked about how she was looking for me to share with you all a light and ethnic recipe that was sure to please. I was more than up for the challenge and seeing as how my favorite ethnic go-to cuisine is normally Mexican, I knew I had something super tasty and delicious in mind that would be sure to make YOU drool. 


As Carrie says "This may not be the lowest calorie dish on the block but it has so much going on". It has all of the key elements for filling your bellies with delicious fresh ingredients that when combined, create a party in your mouth. The true highlight of this dish is the beer braised chorizo because has such amazing flavor and will  actually fill your house with the sweet and spicy smell of the meat. I favor Mexican dishes because veggies and spices are super healthy by nature and you can add as much or as little as you'd like. Add a simple braised meat and wrap and you have created a delicious meal with tons of flavor that will fill you up without making you feel cheated.
Beer braised chorizo, organic refried beans, lettuce, pico de gallo, avocados and shredded cheese all thrown together in a tostada and drizzled with the most outrageous sauce... yup, this is one plate you will be sure to finish, but make sure you savor and relish each and every bite. 


Come on over to Bakeaholic Mama to see this delicious recipe and let Carrie know I sent you. I hope you all enjoy it!
