    Ingredients: 8 each red cabbage leaf --
    washed; raw
    1 can black soy beans --
    2 tablespoons lard -- or
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1 pound ground beef
    1 cup shredded lettuce
    1/2 cup diced tomato
    1 cup shredded cheddar
    1 Tablespoon chili powder
    -- divided
    2 teaspoons cumin powder
    -- divided
    1 tablespoon dried oregano
    -- divided
    1 each salt and pepper -- to
    How To Prepare: In a food processor,
    process drained beans with
    1/2 the seasonings
    until desired consistency is
    reached. Heat lard in a
    skillet and fry
    processed, seasoned
    beans over low heat for
    about 7-8 minutes or until
    through and creamy
    looking. Fry ground beef
    with remaining seasonings
    until cooked through.
    Assemble tostadas: lay out
    cabbage leaves (you need
    firm leaves).
    Spread with the refried
    beans, then the meat,
    onion, lettuce, tomato then
    with the cheese. This
    makes 8 large tostadas
    -you can also skip the
    leaves and add a
    layer of sour cream,
    guacamole and salsa to
    make a layer dip that's great
    with pork rinds.
    Number of Servings: 8
