Holiday Tostada Bar

My favorite time of the year is here! Growing up in Mexico, my mom used to cook amazing food during the holidays. I wanted to share a twist on my Mom’s holiday party: something that is fun and great for both kids and adults. A Holiday Tostada Bar! The menu is super easy to prep because guests can each make their own…

A tostada is made with a crunchy open tortilla (you can find them pre-made at your local grocery store or even on Amazon.) They are used as a base to layer on lots of toppings. You can make them with shredded beef, chicken or pork plus beans, vegetables, and avocado. Oh! And let’s not forget the salsas! They can be mild, spicy or flaming hot. My personal opinion is that the salsa makes the tostada.

This recipe is good for around 12 tostadas:

– 1 pack tostadas (corn crunchy tortilla)
– Refried beans (quick tip: you can use a can of refried beans and season them with salt and pepper!)
– 2 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
– Shredded lettuce
– 2 Avocados
– Cotija Cheese
– Green Salsa
Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream
– Cilantro

Now the fun part begins! To make a tostada, first grab the corn flat tortilla. Then spread the refried beans all around (make a nice even coat), and add the shredded chicken. Add the rest of the toppings: lettuce, cheese, green salsa, a squeeze of Daisy and cilantro on top.

We set all the toppings in colorful, mismatched bowls and try to make it really easy for everyone (including kids!) to dish out themselves. For this party, we tried out Daisy Sour Cream‘s Squeeze Bottle to top of all the tostadas. It meant we had a fewer dishes to wash up at the end, less of a mess at the table, and the kids loved squeezing the sour cream themselves.

For holiday party decorations, I love lots of bright colors. Rainbow papel picado and flowers look great with vintage ornaments and mini Christmas trees.
