Directions

  1. Place potato into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, onion, red bell pepper, and garlic in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add potato, salsa, chili powder, cumin, seasoned salt, and pepper to ground beef mixture; cook and stir over low heat until heated through, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; crack eggs into the hot oil. Cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side.
  4. Place tostada shells on a serving plate; top each with beef-potato mixture. Layer 1 egg onto each tostada; sprinkle with cilantro.

Used 8" tortillas for the tostadas and followed this recipe to the letter. The only criticism that I have is that the beef filling was a little dry and needed a kick of heat (at least for our taste). I put a bottle of hot sauce on the table, so that took care of the spiciness. I used "medium" salsa, so using "hot" may have resolved the "heat" issue. In the future, I'll add more salsa, probably a chopped jalapeño to the filling or a healthy shake of hot sauce, and a poached egg instead of fried. My hubby said he'd definitely like to have this again. Thanks LEMarr for our nice breakfast today.
