Barbacoa Tostadas Recipe With Frontera Frozen Skillets – quick and easy to make with minimal effort, full of authentic Mexican flavors. Perfect for a night with friends.
These Barbacoa Tostadas are ready in 30 minutes, flavorful and delicious and great for busy families and gatherings with friends.
On my recent trip to my local Target, I stumbled upon the Frontera Skillets®, located at the frozen section. The packaging was nice and the food seemed very delicious! I had to try them, because we all love Mexican food. I got the Frontera® Barbacoa Taco Skillet and Frontera® Veggie Taco Skillet. These Skillets are inspired by Chef Rick Bayless.
I had planned a gathering with my girlfriends that night, so I thought that we can enjoy them together. It was our annual Friendsgiving! A night to get together, have fun, delicious food and some drinks.
No time for cooking fancy meals, because I’m super busy with my son, but I’m glad I discovered these amazing products! They are worth trying! Quality and flavors are fantastic!
Frontera uses premium ingredients and time-honored cooking methods because that’s the right way to do it, no shortcuts.
They are quick and easy to prepare and I made mine on the stove top. All you need to do is follow the directions on the package.
Instead of serving the Frontera Skillets® as they are, I decided to make something fun. I made Barbacoa Tostadas with theFrontera® Barbacoa Taco Skillet.
All I did is bake some flour tortillas (you can use corn tortillas) in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 F. Then I topped wth golden brown and crispy tortillas with some of the Barbacoa skillet (about 1/4 cup per tortilla).
These Barbacoa Tostadas could be served as an appetizer of a main dish.
While shopping at Target, I also got a jar of Frontera® Double Roasted Tomato Salsa, which paired well with the Barbacoa tostadas, but was also perfect with some tortilla chips.
There also is a cartwheel offer, that you shouldn’t miss on, if you are planning on trying the Frontera Skillets®.

There are five different kinds of skillets. Here are some details, to help you choose what to try:
- CHICKEN FAJITA SKILLET – Tender cuts of seared chicken simmered together with fire-roasted poblanos and chipotle chiles combine for an aromatic, delicious dish that goes as well in a tortilla wrap as it does over rice.
- CARNITAS TACO SKILLET – Golden, succulent, slow-cooked pork with tangy tomatillos and roasted poblano chiles has to be tasted to be believed.
- VEGGIE TACO SKILLET – In this masterpiece dish, gold-standard ancho chile tomato sauce pairs perfectly with crunchy green beans, fire-roasted peppers, sweet potatoes, and tender plantains.
- CHICKEN TACO SKILLET – Roasted tomatoes and garlic crushed with smoky chipotles pair flawlessly with grilled chicken in this traditional Mexican favorite.
- BARBACOA TACO SKILLET – Tender, roasted three-chile beef barbacoa is the real deal, and you won’t taste anything like it this side of Mexico City.
