Shredded Beef Tostadas


I got a little arrogant on Facebook the other day when I bragged about making 4 meals out of one pot roast. Sorry.  I realize it may have come across a little "I'm so much better then you".  I didn't intend for that.  When scrolling through my posts today I realized, gosh that came across the wrong way!

Here's the thing.  I'm not always that great on planning meals.  I try my best, grocery shop accordingly, but life happens and it doesn't always work out.  So, when it REALLY worked this time, I bragged about it!  Hopefully you'll forgive me.

Because....well, I was pretty proud of this one.

Sorry, there I go again!


Okay, here we go.  Last Sunday I cooked a roast in the crock pot, low and slow with a ton of garlic and a can of beer.  That is my go-to way to cook a roast.  It gives it so much flavor and keeps the meat moist and tender.

After eating the initial pot roast meal {complete with this asparagus and these potatoes}, I then divided out the meat for future meals.  It was a fairly big roast, around 4 lbs, so we had quite a bit of meat leftover.  That meat then turned into french dip sandwiches, beef enchiladas and these shredded beef tostadas.

And I didn't even get sick of eating pot roast!

{Now, if you are one that cannot eat the same thing over and over, I would recommend freezing some of the meat for future use, or simply freezing the pan of enchiladas for a week or two down the road}.


Shredded Beef Tostadas
leftover pot roast
salsa
sour cream
shredded cheese
corn tortillas
additional toppings

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly spray tortillas with cooking spray and lay on a baking sheet.  Bake for 5-7 minutes or until tortillas are lightly brown and crispy.

Heat up the pot roast with a generous amount of salsa.  Top onto the tortilla and add on additional toppings.

Tomorrow I'm going to get the husband to pull out the grill so we can fire it up for a new recipe I've been eyeing.  We have some friends coming for dinner and of course I need to cook!

And maybe bake.

We'll see how the day goes.

Have a great weekend!

  1. This is my husbands favorite dinner. He loves pot roast but can't wait to make it into tacos haha. I would top this with fresh avocado and he'd top it with guacamole ;)

    I love all Mexican food, and love to cook it, but have never made tostadas.
