Spicy ground beef, black beans, and fresh spinach are piled onto crisp tostada shells and then topped with plenty of melting cheese. My kids devoured these tostadas in barely five minutes and then asked if we could make them again the very next day.
When I was on the hunt for easy summer meals, my friend Aggie sent me a link for her spinach tostadas. I’d never thought to add spinach to a taco mixture before this and let me tell you, I may do it every single time in the future. The fresh spinach works with the spicy beef in an unforgettable way. Even my avowed spinach hater commented that he couldn’t believe how good the spinach tasted with the beef. If that isn’t a huge win, I don’t know what is.
This beef and spinach taco mixture is so versatile, I tossed my portion into a salad and am planning to serve this over rice later this month. The whole meal comes together in barely 20 minutes, making it perfect for busy nights, lazy nights, and just about any other kind of night.
