I Learned From My Mom

I learned many things from my mom growing up. I learned amongst many things, how to drive a stick shift, how to be a Godly women, how to clean up after myself (I'm still perfecting that one), and how to cook. :)

Here is one of my favorite recipes that she taught me: Tostadas. Super easy and delicious.

The ingredients are:

  • about 1/2 head of cabbage
  • 1-2 cans of rotel tomatoes 
  • lemon or lime juice
  • 2 cans beans (black or any kind you like, I used pink beans)
  • spices 
  • garlic
  • tostadas 

First, you blend the beans in the blender. I didn't drain either of the cans and my beans were a little runny. I would say to drain one and not the other so the blender has enough liquid. 

Next, I heated the beans on the oven on medium-low, adding garlic, garlic salt, and nature's seasoning. You can add whichever spices you prefer. 

While the beans are heating, slice the cabbage into thin slices. It should look shredded. Put shredded cabbage in a large bowl and add in can of drained rotel tomatoes. Mix evenly and add a splash of lemon or lime juice. 

Spoon beans and then cabbage mixture on top of a tostada. You can also add in ground meat and cheese if you like!
