Recipe Directions

1. Heat a skillet over medium heat with the canola oil and add the onions and garlic. Cook until tender, about 2-3 minutes.
2. Add the Incogmeato® Plant-Based Ground and break up with a spoon. Cook for 2-3 minutes and then add the salt and chile sauce.
3. Cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the sauce has reduced and glazed the plant-based ground.
4. Build the tostadas with about 2 oz. of the Incogmeato® mixture on each tortilla, then top with the pickled onions, queso fresco, and cilantro. Drizzle some of the extra chile sauce over top, and serve the remaining on the side.

1. Remove the seeds and stems from the chiles and place in a skillet over medium heat and toast until they are aromatic. Place them in a bowl, and cover with hot water and allow to soak for 20 minutes, then drain the water and reserve the chiles.
2. Heat a pot over medium heat with canola oil. Add the onions, cumin, oregano, and paprika and sauté for 1-2 minutes, then add the tomatoes, canned tomato, chiles, water, tamari, cider vinegar, sugar, and salt and bring to a simmer.
3. Simmer for about 10-15 minutes, and then place in a blender and puree until smooth.

1. In a small pot, combine the vinegar, water, salt, and sugar and heat until just below a simmer. Turn off heat and add the onions. Steep for about 10-15 minutes then drain liquid, reserving onions.
