These quick and easy tostadas — made with refried beans, Mexican chorizo, shredded Oaxaca cheese, and a whole egg baked on a flour tortilla until golden and crisp — are a fun and tasty treat the whole family will love. Topped with your favorite salsa or pico de gallo, these delicious breakfast tostadas can be enjoyed any time of day.

Spread 3 tablespoons of refried beans over each flour tortilla. Divide and crumble the cooked chorizo over the 4 tortillas. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons of shredded Oaxaca cheese over the chorizo. Break the egg on top of each tostada.

Chef Notes

These tostadas can be made vegetarian friendly by substituting soy chorizo for the Mexican pork or beef chorizo.
