Tostadas add a little variety to the taco night routine at our house, and they allow me to slather a layer of beans on them, which is a definite plus!
This recipe features our Instant Pot Pinto Beans with Mexican-Style Adobo, which have a creamy enough texture that no additional smashing or refrying is necessary. But refried beans work just as well.
For the citrusy cabbage slaw, I used an orange from my neighbor's tree, which happens to bear very sour oranges! If you find the slaw needs a little more sour flavor, I'd recommend just adding a splash of apple cider vinegar or lime juice at the end.

If you haven't already, you'll want to add chermoula to your condiment repertoire. This bright green Moroccan herb sauce is so simple to prepare: just toss cilantro, parsley, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, salt and our Harissa Powder in the blender or food processor. The result is herbaceous, garlicky and a little spicy.
We devised our Montreal Steak and Chop blend based on the classic "Montreal" style, including salt, pepper, onion, garlic, coriander, caraway, dill seed and herbs.
This savory blend is perfect as a simple rub for meat, whether it's a steak, pork chop or burger.
