Even though it was a little grey out, I decided to take my niece and cousin the the I.B. pier for memories sake. Having grown up in San Ysidro, Imperial Beach and Coronado Beach, were young Traci's beaches of choice. Going there, brought back memories of fun, carefree summers (3 fantastic months of vacation.) Those were the days.

To make the tostadas: I made homemade corn tortillas (which is totally easy, check out this post) fried them in veggie oil, until firm.
made homemade pinto beans, re-fried them, and used them as the base for the tostada (easy as well.)
I cooked shredded chicken in tomato sauce, onions, pepper and garlic salt.
l also used romaine lettuce, panela cheese, sour cream and topped with Tapatio.
Let me tell you, this meal was de-lish! I'm still craving it, nothing beats homemade.
P.S. Considering how much I love my sisters, last night's Downton Abbey episode ripped my heart out.
Happy Monday! Big thanks to the lovely ladies (Join the Gossip and Sami's Shananigans) who host the Weekend Update, come join in the fun.
