Ropa Vieja Tostada "Pizzas"

Last week, I promised that I would share one of my favorite ways to eat my Slow Cooker Ropa Vieja. It is colorful, flavorful, and fun to put together!  In fact, it would be a great dish to serve at a party, with people putting together their "pizzas" with their favorite toppings.  :)  Enjoy!

By the way, this is just my favorite way to assemble these pizzas, so feel free to add different "toppings!"  I have a few more suggestions in addition to my faves.

1. Gather all of your ingredients.

2. Assemble the pizzas by topping with cheese, then meat, and then the peppers and onions from the rope vieja.

3. Heat in the microwave or under the broiler until the cheese melts.

4. Finish with the guacamole and sour cream.

These are my favorite toppings, but I have some other great options!

  • Corn
  • Beans (black or pinto)
  • Green onions
  • Salsa
  • Fresh bell peppers
  • Diced fresh onion
