  • SALSA:
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1/8 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 serrano chili
  • salt to taste
  • 4 medium thin cut steaks
  • 1/4 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup beer
  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups Sargento® 4 Cheese Mexican Shredded Cheese
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Optional: top with sour cream
  1. SALSA: Char tomatoes on a pan on medium high heat, turning occasionally for 5 minutes, add onion and garlic and chili, continue cooking for 5 more minutes until ingredients are lightly charred. Remove from heat, and pulse for 10 seconds on a food processor (or until you obtain a chunky texture). Season with salt to taste and reserve.
  2. CARNE ASADA: Season the steaks with salt, pepper, onion, garlic powder, vegetable oil, beer and marinate for 15 minutes. Pan fry each steak at medium heat until light golden brown on both sides. Remove from heat and chop into small cubes. Reserve warm.
  3. TOSTADAS: With the help of a round cookie cutter, cut each tortilla into 3 rounds. Place the rounds on a baking sheet and bake in a 375 °F oven for 5 minutes and turn, add a heaping spoonful of cheese and bake until cheese is melted and golden brown. Remove from the oven.
  4. Place a spoonful of the prepared carne asada on top of the hot and cheesy corn tostadas. Add some roasted red salsa, chopped red onion, cilantro, sour cream serve and enjoy.
