Tostadas de Salpicon (Shredded Beef)

Tostadas are a common dinner at our home. I fry my own corn tortillas since I think they taste so much better than store bought. I also fry my own pinto beans in bacon drippings. But for ease and convenience store bought will do. We top our tostadas with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, sour cream, and salsa.
