I was craving a tostada (basically a fried corn tortilla filled or topped with beans or meat), but my attempt at a healthier version didnâ€™t really work.
Donâ€™t get me wrong â€“ it tasted amazing. The tortillas just crumbled apart on me!
I love recipes with just four ingredients, donâ€™t you?
Each corn tortilla was filled with about two tablespoons of refried beans, some chopped tomatoes, and spinach. I rolled each one up tightly and put them side-by-side in a casserole dish for baking.
After 10 minutes in the oven at 350, I was sad to see that my tortillas had torn during baking. They donâ€™t look so pretty, but they tasted good!
Any solutions to this problem? I sprayed the tortillas with olive oil before baking; that mightâ€™ve been the cause of the tearing.
A PSA from Healthy Tipping Point
As I have mentioned before, I volunteered as a Sexual Assault Peer Counselor for four years in college. Yesterday, I was thinking about something that I learned during my training and wanted to share it with you all!
Did you know that break-ins, robberies, and sexual assaults surge during periods of warm weather? Thatâ€™s because everyone leaves their windows open to enjoy the nice weather. And criminals love the easy access.
It was so lovely out yesterday that I had every window in my apartment wide open. I was sitting on the porch when I realized that someone could easily enter my bedroom from the backyardâ€¦ and I would be none the wiser because I was up at the front of the house! I closed all the windows except the ones in my living room (which is in the front of the house where I was sitting).
Just a loving reminder from Healthy Tipping Point to be careful this spring! Keep your windows closed when youâ€™re out of that room, out of the house, or asleep.
