Beyond Vegan Crispy Tostadas

Beyond Vegan Crispy Tostadas

These tostadas are shockingly delicious and super crispy! Perfect dish to make for lunch or dinner. Quick and easy to make!

Mexican food is one of the easiest things to make vegan and it's definitely a favorite in our household. We pan fried corn tortillas in oil to make the perfect crispy tostadas. You can also use store bought tostadas if you prefer. We also use our homemade cashew sour cream to take this dish to a whole new level!

We use Beyond meat in this recipe to make the "beef" but you can use your favorite beefy crumble. With so many plant based meats these days you can veganize any dish!
