A crispy fried corn tortilla topped with guacamole, spicy sausage, cheese, and a sunny-side up egg.


4 corn tortillas, fried crispy
2 Tablespoons olive oil (for frying tortillas)
1 pound spicy sausage (chorizo for example)
1 avocado, mashed
1 Cup cheddar cheese, grated
A handful of spinach leaves
4 large eggs
1 Teaspoon of butter per egg (for frying)
Hot sauce


1) Add a drizzle of oil to a large pan over medium-high heat.  Add corn tortillas one at a time.  Fry for 15 seconds on side one and then flip.  Continue to fry (flipping occasionally) for another 2-3 minutes until tortilla is nice and crispy.

2) Remove tortilla to a plate with a paper towel to drain.  Fry other tortillas and set aside.

3) Cook sausage in a large pan.

4) Mash guacamole with cilantro.

5) Spread guacamole on tostada.  Top with spinach and sausage.  Add grated cheese.

6) Fry egg in butter.  Either over-easy or sunny-side up is a good option.  You could also poach the egg for a slightly healthier option.

78) Top tostada with egg and garnish with hot sauce, cilantro, salt and pepper.
