Good Mood Tostadas

{comfort food in a taco shell}
I don't even know what the heck tostadas even are, but they look like open faced tacos to me. And I love tacos. So immediately, of course, I loved these! They were pretty easy to assemble, and oh so delicious for a week night. I highly recommend them to anyone. They did actually make me feel better after a long hard day at work!
1 tablespoon vegetable, plus more for frying
1 pound ground beef
One package taco seasoning (plus water for the seasoning)
Pinch of Salt
1 can re-fried beans
6 small tortillas (corn or flour)
1 recipe Yes, I Make My Own Salsa

All the fixings you like:
Shredded cheddar cheese
Sour cream

In a medium skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over moderately high heat. Add the beef and cook, stirring to break up any lumps, until browned, about 6 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Spoon off any excess oil from the skillet. Stir in the taco seasoning and water and cook for 1 minute. Scrape the meat into a heatproof bowl, cover and set aside.

Assemble all your condiments so they are ready to go. Heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in the skillet over moderately high heat. Test the temperature of the oil: when a drop of water sizzles on the surface, using tongs, place 1 tortilla in the oil. Fry, turning once, until golden grown, about 1 minute. A flour tortilla may bubble a bit, but it will flatten out after frying. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
To serve, spread each tortilla with re-fried beans, then top with a few tablespoons of ground beef and desired condiments. Ta-da!
