Oh wow...the chorizo sausage really adds great flavor to these easy-to-make tostadas.  Give them a try...your family will love them!


  • 1/4 pound (2 links) fresh chorizo sausage, casing removed
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 cups frozen potatoes with onions & peppers, thawed
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Picante Sauce
  • 1 can (about 15 ounces) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 8 egg, beaten
  • 8 tostada shell, warmed
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (about 4 ounces)


  • Tips

    • Easy Substitution: You can also use hot Italian pork sausage instead of the chorizo.
  • Step 1

    Cook the sausage in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Remove the sausage from the skillet.  Pour off any fat.

  • Step 2

    Add the oil to the skillet and heat over medium-high heat.  Add the potatoes and cook until browned, stirring occasionally.  Stir in 1/2 cup picante sauce and the beans.  Return the sausage to the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Step 3

    Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet.  Add the eggs and cook and stir until scrambled and cooked through.  Season to taste.

  • Step 4

    Divide the sausage mixture among the tostadas.  Top with the eggs and cheese.  Serve with the remaining picante sauce, spooned on top and/or on the side.
