A Different Tostada

Carbs Per Serving: 8.5
Effort: Easy
8 each red cabbage leaf — washed;  raw
1 can black soy beans — drained
2 tablespoons lard — or shortening
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 pound ground beef
1 cup shredded lettuce
1/2 cup diced tomato
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon chili powder — divided
2 teaspoons cumin powder — divided
1 tablespoon dried oregano — divided
1 each salt and pepper — to taste

How to Prepare:

In a food processor, process drained beans with 1/2 the seasonings until desired consistency is reached. Heat lard in a skillet and fry processed, seasoned beans over low heat for about 7-8 minutes or until warmed through and creamy looking. Fry ground beef with remaining seasonings until cooked through.
Assemble tostadas: lay out cabbage leaves (you need firm leaves).
Spread with the refried beans, then the meat, onion, lettuce, tomato then top with the cheese. This
makes 8 large tostadas – you can also skip the leaves and add a layer of sour cream, guacamole and salsa to make a layer dip that’s great with pork rinds.
