Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Crumble beef in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat until the fat has started to render, about 2 minutes. Stir in potatoes and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in taco seasoning and cook for 2 minutes more.

  • Divide beef mixture, lettuce, olives, and Mexican cheese blend among the tostada shells.

Cook's Note:

I typically make my own taco seasoning and tostada shells but used store- bought in this recipe to keep the ingredient list and directions to a minimum. Feel free to substitute homemade.
