Welcome Back Tostada Suiza

I’ve been traveling the world and I just couldn’t find the time to write to you along the way. Or, I moved twice and my kitchen situation has been dicey, so I haven’t been sharing what I have been cooking between unpacking boxes and occasionally dining out 3 times a day. You take your pick.  And by you I mean all three of my readers.

For my unofficial “welcome back to the blog world” party [really-you shouldn’t have], I decided to make something that was Mexican themed, naturally, and something really easy. It’s a take on one of my favorite dishes at our local Mexican haunt. It’s called Enchiladas Suiza. It was a week day though and I had already had too many Negra Modelos  couldn’t swing the enchilada part, so I give you: Tostada Suiza. You can thank me at my next surprise party.

De nada.
