•600gr ground beef
•2 small potatoes. Diced.
•1 small yellow onion. Diced.

Add olive oil, diced potatoes, onions and garlic into a hot large pan and cook for a couple minutes. Add ground beef and break it apart. Once all the beef liquid evaporates, season with Asada rub. Keep cooking until beef and potatoes are fully cooked.

Cabbage Slaw:

Spread refried beans on tostadas, add picadillo (3-4 tbsp per tostada), add salsa (I had salsa roja, use what ever you want, there’s no rules with Salsa!), 2-4 avocado slices per tostada, top with a generous amount of cabbage slaw, finish with some crumble feta cheese. Provecho!
