  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, onion, red bell pepper, and garlic in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add potato, salsa, chili powder, cumin, seasoned salt, and pepper to ground beef mixture; cook and stir over low heat until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; crack eggs into the hot oil. Cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side.

  • Place tostada shells on a serving plate; top each with beef-potato mixture. Layer 1 egg onto each tostada; sprinkle with cilantro.

Used 8" tortillas for the tostadas and followed this recipe to the letter. The only criticism that I have is that the beef filling was a little dry and needed a kick of heat (at least for our taste). I put a bottle of hot sauce on the table so that took care of the spiciness. I used "medium" salsa so using "hot" may have resolved the "heat" issue. In the future I'll add more salsa probably a chopped jalapeño to the filling or a healthy shake of hot sauce and a poached egg instead of fried. My hubby said he'd definitely like to have this again. Thanks LEMarr for our nice breakfast today. Read More
