Beef & Mango Tostadas

tostada So I know beef and mango might sound as good as kiwi and mushrooms or pork and chocolate. Trust me though, it goes so well together. This recipe is super simple and it is perfect for leftovers. I also diced up some jalapenos and sprinkled it on top. That’s just how I roll though. Anything that goes well with spice, I will be adding it. I think sour cream would be good too but since I’m trying to lose weight (sigh) then I skipped out on it. I know though by imagining it together it would taste well with it :).
