Shredded Beef and Avocado Tostada

Shredded Beef and Avocado TostadaThe shredded beef from the Beef and Sweet Potato Baked Taquitos was so delicious that I couldn’t wait to eat the leftovers. I made these tasty tostadas for lunch and they simple, healthy, and tasted fantastic. I loved the tender beef with the crisp corn tortilla and the creamy refried beans topped with tasty lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, green onions, and cotija cheese. It was a light yet filling meal. I used the remaining beef for dinner and made Eggs Barbacoa. Three flavorful and delicious meals using the shredded beef… I love that.
