Tostadas de Calabacitas con Chorizo

The Christmas Posadas are coming up soon and it means nine days of celebration where there will be lots of delicious food and I can’t wait. I love the traditional dishes and drinks like tamales and ponche, but I can’t say no more contemporary options like Tostadas. Of course you can put pretty much anything on a tostada, but nothing like this guisado with calabacitas and chorizo. It will make your mouth water. I love making it with Cacique Soy Chorizo, but you can definitely choose the beef or pork options. Plus you can top with crema how I like it or you can sprinkle any type of cheese. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!
