While taking a little break from our busy lives as the cold winter days sets in, we’re hiding out at our home here in Central Mexico. My husband grew up here, so our visits are always full of warm, loving friends and family.
We all love Mexican food. As tasty as it is, I don’t feel awesome after eating it since many dishes are heavy and rich. So I have fun in the kitchen re-creating some of our favorites that are fresh, healthy and energizing.
The day we arrived, I headed over to the local grocery store here and grabbed all the essentials for making healthy, nourishing meals with all the best local Mexican foods.
You don’t actually need to be in Mexico to make this one… a healthy twist on my favorite Mexican dish – tostadas! To make the perfect tostada, you’ll need crunchy tortillas, creamy refried beans, shredded chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, avocados, cilantro and a few salsa choices. To make it fun for the whole family, set up a little tostada bar. Place all the ingredients in separate bowls on the table and everyone can create their very own unique dish. It’s always a hit!
