Grilled Steak Tostadas

Mmm I can’t wait for Cinco De Mayo! You bet I’ll be stuffing my face with every burrito, taco, and enchilada I can get my hands on. You see, I have a special place in my heart for Mexican food. I absolutely adore it.

Especially this dish. It’s crispy, light, and flavorful. Everything you could ever want.

Succulent steak topped with salty queso, a squeeze of fresh lime juice, and a sweet, tangy homemade salsa. Stacked on top of the greatest invention ever. That being those fresh, crunchy tostadas down below.

Grilled Steak Topping:
Ingredients: (serves 4)
2 New York strip steaks, or whatever kind of steak you prefer
Steak seasoning, to taste
1 cup queso fresco
1 tomato, chopped
1/3 onion, chopped
1 lime
Cilantro, to taste
Sherry vinegar, to taste
Lettuce, for serving
Avocado, for serving
Directions:
In a small bowl combine the chopped tomato, onion, and cilantro. Add lime juice + vinegar to taste. Set aside to marinate. Season your steaks and grill according to your desired well-ness. Let set for for about 5-10 minutes for the juices to set in. Arrange your tostadas and crumble queso over them. Serve!

Homemade Tostadas:
Ingredients: (makes 5)
Heaping 3/4 cup of all-purpose flour
Heaping 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour (don’t omit, need for sweetness & texture)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Warm water, as needed (I used about a 3 tablespoons)
Directions:
Mix the flours, salt, and baking powder well in a bowl. Rub in the olive oil well. Gradually add the warm water by the tablespoon and knead into a smooth dough. Divide the dough into 5 equal golf ball sized balls and let rest for 15 minutes. Flatten each ball as thin as possible into round shapes, dusting with all=purpose flour when needed. (Hint: I rolled it as thin as I possibly could and used the flat part of a paper plate to make decent looking circles). One at a time, cook the tostadas in a skillet on medium until it starts to bubble and slightly brown on the side facing down, then repeat with the other side until evenly cooked.

Thank you, Hispanic type people :)

  1. Chloe, will definitely try those YUMMMAY looking tostadas. Have you tried making you own queso fresco? SO easy and so yummy. Basic ricotta with salt to taste and whatever yummy spices you want thrown in…how about chipotles? I love your enthusiasm for cuisine. Keep going!
