Vegetable Toastada Salad

My love for Mexican food continues with this light and delicious salad. You can have it with as a side of  Burritos. I love this Toastadas, its so crunchy and hold such a nicely.  You can use any pre cooked meat on this instead of Refried Beans. You can your choice of greens too instead of Lettuce. For more healthier I grilled one green capsicum and onion and cut them in squares and add as toppings but you can avoid it if you don't want to add it. So lets start with it.


8 Toastadas

1 can Refried beans
chopped jalapenos and garlic ,
1 tsp Taco seasoning
1 tsp oil

For Toppings :
1 chopped onion
1 chopped tomato
1 grilled green capsicum and onion
1 chopped seedless jalapenos
Cheese if you like it,
cilantro - lime dressing


Heat a oil in pan. Add  jalapenos and garlic, saute for few seconds and add beans.
Add little water to make thin.
Add taco seasoning and salt if you need any.
Cook cover for 5 minutes and take it out from gas.

To serve :

Take one Toastad in dish.

First take refried beans and spread it all over toastas.
then add raw onion, tomato and grilled onions,lettuce, pickle jalapenos , salsa and dressing.
Eat it immediately.
If you can not find Toastadas, Deep fry corn tortillas and while its hot sprinkle some salt on it and then use it
