Well my friends are you ready to try a yummy twist on a tostada?
At our house Mexican food is one of our favorites. We could literally eat it three or four times a week.
Growing up mom always made a little something we called
Interesting name, right? Wait till you hear where it came from. One of mom's best friends was named, Grace. Us kids had all nick named her Grasco. Not sure if she ever knew that. She gave this recipe to mom and Grasco's is all we ever called it.
They are very simple to make and boy are they ever tasty!
First you brown a lb. of ground beef. Drain off any grease and add two cans of diced tomatoes. I usually add a can of green chili's or the tomatoes that have them in it.
Then you add a can of sliced potatoes, drained.
(I know it sounds a little weird, but trust me, it's yummy)
At this point you can add a TBs. or two of cornstarch to a small amount of water. Then add to meat mixture to thicken.
Fry your flour tortilla in hot oil till crispy. Turning to brown both sides.
Here's a little tip: I always save an empty oil bottle. After frying I let the oil cool and then dump back into the bottle and place it in the freezer until I am going to fry something again.
Place your fried shells between paper towels to absorb extra grease.
Then top it with the meat/potato mixture.
Dress it just like you would a tostada:
I used plain diced tomatoes this night so we added a few jalapenos.
I guarantee that this quick and easy meal will have you
thinking you are South of the border in sweet Old Mexico!
