Breakfast Tostadas

Breakfast Tostadas - scrambled eggs, salsa, and southwestern slaw! Such a yummy twist on breakfast

(Happy Valentine’s Day! Let’s talk about things my husband hates!)

The husband gets tired of all the Mexican food I try shoving in his face on a daily basis.

“We’re American”, he shouts! “Let’s eat a cheeseburger!”

Then I smile politely and cook the man a taco. I mean, he just doesn’t know good food when he sees it.

Anyway, he leaves for work at 0’dark thirty, so the kids and I are on our own for breakfast. He would die if he knew that I Mexican-ified his favorite meal.

These tostadas are pretty quick and easy to make, which is the way most breakfasts should be, in my opinion. Starting your day with a little bit of spice and a ton of flavor is just the perfect way to wake up! Not to mention, these things are packed full of nutrients and protein and all other manner of good for you stuff, like veggies. For breakfast. Weird, man.

My favorite part? These tostadas fill you right up and keep you full until lunch time!

    the man doesn’t like mexican food?!? I thought that was like…a boy staple. It’s pretty much the only “ethnic” food my brother will eat after all! Well, I love the sound of these tostadas. Totally my kinda meal!

    Ummm these sound amazing. btw… I think our husbands would get along great because I make either Mexican food or Asian food just about daily and I hear the whole “we’re American” thing at least once a week! lol.

    What is so wrong with being American and eating Mexican food everyday??


  11. kirsten@FarmFreshFeasts February 14, 2013 @ 6:21 pm (#

    My spouse and son would totally love these. My daughter would like a less-spicy version, but would eat that right up.

    Thanks, Karly!

    I’d eat Mexican food every single day if I could. These look like the perfect breakfast! We’ll have to get some good food in Austin!

    We eat Mexican food at my house 2 out of 3 days. EVERY WEEK. We love it (obvs). These tostadas will make the perfect breakfast for us this weekend. :-)

    oh man! Mexican is my favorite! My husbands too..although if I offered him a taco or a cheeseburger, Im not sure which he’d pick! Biggest fans of both! These look incredible!!

    I absolutely heart you for Mexican-ifing breakfast! Mexican food is one of my top two food groups :-)

    I had my first tostada 3 years ago, and I’ve been wondering where the heck I’ve been my entire life ever since. These look wonderful!

    Yes, yes, yes!!!!

    This looks delicious, can’t wait to surprise my hubby with this.

    He’s full blooded Irish and his friends all tease that he is a Mexican on the weekends.
