Veggie Tostadas and Homemade Salsa

I love Mexican food. It's all good, whether wrapped up or laid out. Mmm. We make it all kinds of ways, but this is as straightforward as it gets.

My son recently brought home this recipe for salsa, and it is pretty darn tasty!

Salsa Ingredients:
1 can stewed tomatoes (or 3 fresh, chopped)
1 small white onion
3 green onions
1 clove garlic
2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
3-4 sprigs of cilantro
1 roasted green chile (or 1 small can of chiles)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Mix all ingredients in the food processor and enjoy!

Tostada Ingredients:

2 cups cooked refried or whole beans (try black or pinto)
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup chopped spinach
1 cup chopped tomato
1/2 cup each green onion and cilantro, chopped
shredded cheese (optional)
pre-cooked tostada shells

Spread a thin layer of beans on each tostada shell and top with herbs, spinach, salsa, guacamole. Ole!
