Fully Loaded Tostadas

After making those crunch wrap burgers, we had a few left over tostadas. Instead of using them to make the equivalent of flat tacos, we decided to go all out. These things push the edge of what is considered finger food into monster sized food. They come with every topping you could imagine to put on them!

DIRECTIONS:

9) Top with salsa and a dollop of sour cream.
10) Garnish with the limes and have your guests squeeze the juice over top of them before eating. IMG_1202

These were so filling that one was enough for a whole meal! Definitely recommend these as a meal and not as an appetizer!
