How to Make Fajitas Tostadas with Green Pepper Hot Sauce
Here’s an easy Father’s Day idea: How to Make Fajitas Tostadas with Green Pepper Hot Sauce, a Vegetarian recipe perfect for the week ahead.
I’ve been on a tostada mission as of late, trying lots of varieties. I have another recipe coming up with strawberry beet salsa, which I’ll be posting soon. This time we had our friends over for an impromptu easy dinner out by the pool. What I love about hosting a “tostada bar” is that it’s not only made up of easy ingredients we keep on hand, but we just set it all out on the kitchen island, and everyone creates their own tostada delight.
This nibble-friendly recipe involves Cholula Green Pepper Hot Sauce. I say “nibble-friendly,” because the pepper and bean mixture is good enough to eat by itself. You can just nibble on that, or on the guacamole; you can make a taco salad instead of a tostada, or even nibble on the tomatoes. There’s no rules involved when you build your own tostada! And when you add a few drops of this amazing hot sauce, the bites get better and better!
The flavor with this Green Pepper Hot Sauce was bold, but you can tailor the spice to your preferred level of hotness. That is what I love about Cholula hot sauce – drizzle it on or pour it on, whatever works best for you.
I specifically am loving all the new flavors they offer!
And I love setting them out for the guests to also decide what “flavor” settles best with their palate. Although on this night, I served the new Green Pepper flavor.
Now to the Fajitas Tostadas. It only takes a few minutes to cook up the onions, peppers, and add in corn and spices and a can of beans.
Don’t forget the delicious toppings, especially heirloom tomatoes that are already in the stores. This Vegetarian recipe is so quick and easy, if you’re short on time, you can always buy store-bought guacamole.
So, perfect for Father’s Day week ahead!
