More About This Recipe
My grill and I are like this because we spend a lot of time experimenting together. Can you cook breakfast on a grill? (Yes.) Dessert? (Yes.) My latest experiment involved seeing if I could turn a tortilla into a tostada shell merely by spraying it with cooking oil and grilling it. (YES!) I love when these experiments work out.
Grilled Veggie Tostadas are easy to make. You grill up veggies until they are sweet and a just a little charred, giving them that great smoky flavor that you can only get from grilling.
Then comes the fun part. You grill the tortillas until they are browned and puffy. Magically when you let them cool down, they harden into crispy, delicious shells. It’s awesome.
Once that’s all done, you pile the tortillas high with refried beans, grilled veggies, cheese and salsa. These babies might look small at first, but they are pretty filling. However, if you have big eaters, you might want to make a double batch to ensure that there’s enough for everyone. Or serve these with a giant chopped salad.
These are perfect for a lunch or a light dinner.
