I love to take the leftovers from a great entree and turn them into something completely different – you know hide the fact that we’re eating leftovers!
I found a great way to use pork tenderloin this week that was so delicious and so different from the way it was originally served, that there’s almost no way someone would have know that Sunday dinner was being revisited (isn’t that better than saying, “leftovers?!”).
Enter the Pork Tostada! I ask you – does this look like boring leftovers?
Grilled Pork Tostadas
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground cumin
2 Cups Chopped Pork Tenderloin, cooked
1 cup peppers, multi-colored, chopped
1/2 Cup Red onion, chopped
1 1/2 Cup Mexican cheese
Toppings – lettuce, sour cream, tomatoes, cilantro, lime wedges, avocado
Combine oil, cumin and salt. Pour half of mixture over vegetables to coat. Pour the other half over the meat, stir to coat.
Cook vegetables in small amount of oil until tender. Add meat, cook until meat is warmed.
Brush tortillas with olive oil and place on baking sheet. Toast tortillas in 400 degree oven until crisp. Top with vegetables, meat, cheese and return to oven and allow cheese to melt.
Serve immediately. Serve with added toppings.
I served this with Spanish rice and fresh fruit and it was sooo good!!
Roast a tenderloin and grab the remains so you can make these!
