We’re a bit obsessed with tostadas in my home. Maybe it’s because everyone can customize their toppings. Or maybe it’s just because tostadas are so darn good.
Thank goodness my kids can handle food with a kick. Because who wants to eat bland food all the time? Not me!
So, when Sabra sent me a collection of their latest hummus flavors, you can guess which one I immediately dove into.
Hello, Jalapeño Hummus
I’ve got to say, this hummus has just the right amount of heat. It definitely kicks things up a notch, in the best sort of way.
Traditionally, tostadas are topped with refried beans. But hummus, a plant based protein, has the same creamy texture as refried beans, making it a perfect substitute. Especially when the hummus is spiked with jalapeños, mmmmm-yeah!
If jalapeños aren’t your thing, go ahead and experiment with another kind of hummus. Sabra has more than a dozen flavors, and really, why should pinto beans get all the fun when chick peas like to party, too!
I used about a gazillion time-saving short cuts to make this recipe. But you’d never know the difference. You can use these shortcuts too to get dinner on the table in 10-minutes flat.
- Try Sabra’s Jalapeño Hummus, instead of making your own refried beans.
- Opt for rotisserie chicken, instead of roasting your own.
- Take advantage of pre-made corn tostadas, like these by El Milagro, which hands-down makes the best tortilla products.
- Use your favorite pico de gallo as a flavorful topping.
