As you may already know, I live in San Antonio, Texas.
Every April the city holds a huge, very important festival called Fiesta, which has been celebrated ever since the late 19th century.
The festival honors the memory of the battles of the Alamo and San Jacinto.
Fiesta is known for its parades with extravagantly decorated floats, music, yummy street food, marching bands, colorful decorations, and cascarones (colorful eggshells filled with confetti), among other things.
I’m not kidding! It’s an 11-day citywide party to thrill the eyes, spirit, and palate!
Whether you can visit my city to enjoy Fiesta or not, have a little taste of it by trying our Queso Burger Tostadas.
How to Prepare our Queso Burger Tostadas
To prepare them, all we need to do is cook onion and garlic in oil for about 4 minutes over medium heat.
Next, cook seasoned lean ground beef over medium heat for 3 minutes, stir in tomato paste and let cook for an additional 3 minutes.
When meat is cooked, squeeze on the juice of a lime.
To arrange the tostadas, place yellow corn tostadas on a plate, spread warm Rico’s Gourmet Nacho Cheese Sauce on top, spoon on cooked ground beef, pico de gallo, chopped red cabbage, and sliced avocados.
