This Tex Mex recipe is like a tenderloin steak tostada, but the ground filet mignon makes it way easier to eat!
For this dish, we used Omaha Steaks Ground Filet Mignon.
We’re sure you know that Omaha Steak sells tenderloin filet mignon steaks, but they also have tenderloin in steak tips (don’t miss our Philly Cheesesteak Dip recipe), our favorite burger patties, and the ground meat that we’re using for this recipe.
Y’all, the ground tenderloin is SO FLAVORFUL! The meat is really juicy as a result of the perfect 75/25 lean-to-fat ratio. Plus the meat is aged at least 21 days. It really brings these ground beef tostadas to another level.
While having happy hour at home, we decided to make these tostadas as a snack. They were so good that it soon became a meal. We couldn’t eat just one, plus they were super hearty!
There are a few reasons why this recipe is taking over Taco Tuesday. Tostadas make the meat the star of the dish vs. the meat getting hidden in a blanket of tortilla, like a traditional taco. Plus, tostadas just feel fancier for some reason. As a result, Tostada Tuesday is officially a thing!
This ground beef tostada recipe was inspired by one of our favorite dishes from Grizzeldas, a local Tex Mex restaurant in Austin. Now you can enjoy this crispy and flavorful Tex Mex dish in the comfort of your home!
Beef Tostada Recipe
1 pound of Omaha Steaks Ground Beef Tenderloin
1 cup minced white onion
1 tbsp minced jalapeno
3 tsp cumin
2 tsp paprika
Salt and pepper
1 pack of crunchy corn tostada shells
1 cup of Mexican shredded cheese
1 can of refried black or pinto beans (16oz.)
Pickled red onion or pickled jalapenos
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium skillet, cook the ground tenderloin until it is no longer pink. Add in the minced white onion and minced jalapeno. Cook until the onion is soft and then add the cumin, paprika, salt and pepper.
Mix the meat mixture until the seasoning is well combined.
Spread the refried beans onto a crunchy tostada. Use a slotted spoon to scoop the meat on top of the beans. Next, sprinkle it with cheese. Cook in a 375 degree oven for 5 minutes until the cheese has melted.
Garnish your tostadas with avocado, scallion, and cilantro.
Next time we make these Tex Mex snacks, we are also going to add pickled onions or pickled jalapenos. The acidity will be a nice balance this savory dish!
