-3 cups of red cabbage, shredded
-1 cup cotija cheese, finely grated
Salsa of choice
Serves 4 to 6
1) Begin by taking chorizo out of casing and placing it in a medium sauté pan set over medium heat. Break up chorizo into one even layer and allow to cook for 1-2 minutes or until juice is released. Begin breaking up chorizo with spoon of choice and continue cooking until all juice has cooked out and chorizo has darkened to a rich deep red, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
2) Heat your refried beans on low heat until they are warmed throughout.
Take approximately 1 tablespoon of beans and spread them on one side of the tostada. Add cooked chorizo to the beans spreading about 1-2 teaspoons of meat on each tostada. Add shredded cabbage, sour cream, cotija cheese and salsa to taste and serve.
