Intro: Chorizo, Goat Cheese and Poblano Tostadas

Mexican Tostada Pizzas are so simple, so versatile and SO delicious.  

Try my favorite version with Chorizo, poblano chili strips and goat cheese -or- experiment and create a signature Tostada Pizza of your very own.

Pre-cooked tostada shells are the only necessary ingredient. The rest is entirely up to you! 

Bajablue Tostada ingredients:

1 serving:
  • 1 pre-cooked Corn Tostada 
  • 2 Tablespoons cooked Chorizo Sausage
  • Roasted Poblano and Red pepper strips
  • Goat cheese to taste- crumbled
Prep and cook: 

Roast Poblano and Red Chiles over your gas stovetop burner (or outside with a torch) until the skin is charred.  Place the chile on a sheet of paper towel and rub the blackened skin off. Slice into thin strips. Discard the seed core. Set the sliced chiles aside.

Squeeze 3 oz. chorizo* from it's casing into a small skillet.  Add 3 Tablespoons of water.  Bring to a quick boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes.  The chorizo should be somewhat dry after simmering.  Add just enough water to give it a thick, saucy consistency. Keep warm.

Place a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the Tostada and heat it for one minute. Turn the shell over and spoon on the chorizo "sauce", the goat cheese and roasted chiles.  Cook 1 minute more, then reduce the heat to low. Cook 2 more minutes or until the cheese has softened.  Use a spatula and move the Tostada Pizza to a plate.

Allow it to cool for a minute or 2... then serve or devour! ;-P~

*There may be leftover chorizo making this single serving, but why resist the overwhelming  urge to make another? ;-)

    It's a good thing we aren't neighbors because I would probably be drooling on your doorstep every day!! :)

    Just out of curiosity, is "Poblamo" another type of pepper? I thought at first you may have misspelled ""Poblano, with an "N", but it occurs several times throughout the instructable. Plus I have seen this word on the internet several times now in the last few days. Just curious.

    I've also perused all your instructables. Awesome compendium of edibles you have there.

    Dang it! I thought I had found a new type of pepper to try.

    Oh well. Looks good anyway. Mystery solved indeed.


    Not that it matters, but I think you meant cotija cheese? It's similar in texture to goat cheese (and feta) but cotija comes from cows.

    Regardless... if you like it, eat it! I keep chorizo in my frig at all times. I love these little pizzas for a quick meal.
