Loaded Tostada's...Revisted

A quick note from NeeCee;

This last month has been full of unexpected things....

I have a family member who has been very ill. Recently they became increasingly worse. So time has passed slow & fast for me....
Please bare with me as a few posts may be re-visted now and then.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel and we are heading towards that light.
Soon we will all be back on track!
Thank you for understanding....

This meal is always refreshing...and full of flavor!

Loaded Tostada's...

These Loaded Tostada's are easy to fix and yummy to eat.  They may be served as a Tostada Bar, having guest's help themselves. Or assembled and served.

Loaded Tostada's
Prepare everything you can ahead of time, including serving dishes. This will make assembly run smooth and quickly. Whether it is you or your guests dishing it up!
(My recipe serves 6-8 people)

1 pound of hamburger, cooked and crumbled (re-heat before serving)
1 large tin of re-fried beads ( *I add a little bit of water to give them a smooth texture, for easy spreading on the tortilla.) Heat just before serving according to the directions on the can.
1 jar of cheese sauce, slightly heated
1 jar of jalapeno's
1 bag of shredded mexican cheese
1 bag of corn tortilla's, fried in hot oil just before assembling, allow 2 per person
fresh tomato's, diced (if you seed them first, they won't be watery)
3 stalks of green onion, sliced 
 2 cans of sliced black olives, drained
2-3 ripe avocado's, mash in a bowl, season with garlic pepper and a squirt of lime or lemon
1 jar of salsa, your choice
1 container of sour cream
1 bottle of hot sauce

Assembly of Tostada's:
Have all of your ingredients ready......lined up for easy access 
On a plate, place first tortilla and spread with beans and cheese,
Next, place second tortilla on top, repeat as above, 
Then start layering tortilla's with the rest of your ingredients.
Tomatoes, Onions, Olives, Jalapenos...
Top with avocado and sour cream, drizzle with cheese sauce,
splash of hot sauce!
Simply good...serve with style...
