Salsa Verde Pork Tostadas
These Salsa Verde Pork Tostadas are another tasty reason to make my All Purpose Pork Roast. So many tasty meal options from one slow cooker roast, it’s a no brainer. We usually make two meals from it, and freeze the rest for new meals another week. I always try and buy the largest shoulder roast possible, boneless or bone-in works great.
Tostadas are just fried corn tortillas. If you have corn tortillas and want to fry your own, go for it! Or, you can purchase them ready to eat, and come in a big stack. Basically a jumbo tortilla chip.
For the leftover pork combine it with the salsa verde and spices and warm through over the stove. You could certainly microwave if you do not have stove access. Add more salsa if it seems to dry out. The refried beans just get heated over the stovetop as well. I’ve never loved refried beans, but they’ve really grown on me. In combination with everything else, they’re a perfect addition to this dish!
Layer the beans, meat and all your favorite toppings for a simple and tasty tostada. I love using crumbled queso fresco, its mild, cool, and creamy and perfect for these tostadas. Lettuce, tomatoes, green onion, avocado and a drizzle more of salsa verde and you’re all set. Don’t forget the hot sauce!
A simple, quick, and delicious weeknight meal! Pair it with my Creamy Corn Dip for the perfect menu, yum! Let me know what you think of these Salsa Verde Pork Tostadas. Here are a few of my other favorite ways to enjoy my All Purpose Pork Roast.
