Yeahiatethat.com Yeah, I ate that. A place to share your food with the world.


Brisbane, Australia :: I've always called this a "stack" but I think it's actually supposed to be a called a TOSTADA! 

I believe I originally found this recipe in a Weight Watchers cookbook and its been a keeper ever since!

I make a spicy Mexican-style mixture to put on a toasted tortilla -- usually kidney bean but this time it was beef and bean.  The original recipe called for refried beans which are MAGNIFICENT as well........ just use your imaginations as to what toppings! 

I then pile it high with avocado, capsicum, lettuce, red onion, tomatoes, fresh coriander -------> (ESSENTIAL)and usually a dollop of sour cream and maybe guacamole ;-) This time I also added shredded red cabbage and sugar snap peas coz that's what I had in the fridge and now I don't know how I ever did without them! Just use any salady-type veggies that you have in the fridge that you enjoy! 

This is a HUGE HIT with my man as it's basically one HUGE salad!!

This was one of the meals that I ate very regularly on the points programme coz it's SO filling and it feels like i'm eating a REAL MEAL!  On WW, most vegetables are "points" free so with a recipe like this you can GO WILD!!!

OH and PS, this is very quick to make, basically as long as it takes to open a can of refried beans and chop up some salad.... very good for a healthy yet delicious weeknight dinner! Brisbane, Australia
