RECIPE BACKSTORY
I came up with this recipe when a friend of mine had served enchiladas made from these ingredients. My husband is not a fan of the enchiladas so I tried it out as a tostada. The recipe was a big hit in my house. I usually make enough to have for two dinners since they like it so much. This is a fast and easy recipe for when it has been a rather busy day.
