Pork Tostadas with Cucumber Lime Salsa

My husband’s favorite Mexican treat for me to make at home is tostadas. Last night I made our tostadas with pork and a fresh cucumber lime salsa. I topped it with guacamole before serving. It was quick, simple and so tasty. I didn’t get a picture of it, but last night I also got the perfect idea for a kid friendly tostada – a tostada sandwich. Tostadas are really fun for adults, but sometimes, it’s hard for little kids to balance all those goodies on top of their tostada shells. So last night I added another tostada shell with beans spread on it to the top of my son’s tostada, making a little sandwich. It was much easier for him to handle, and fun.
