Queijo Fresco Tostada

I brought home a tub of Nicolau Farms Queijo Fresco ("fresh cheese") from the Mountain View Farmer's Market today. This queijo fresco is made from goat milk and is perfectly salted. Looking for a quick lunch, and to use up ingredients on hand, we decided on tostadas.

When you think about it, tostadas are a lot like tartines, with tortillas used in place of bread. Here's what we came up with:
Queijo Fresco Tostadas
Serves 2

4 corn tortillas
4 oz queijo fresco
1/2 c tomatillo salsa
1c cherry tomatoes, quartered
1/2 c white onion, minced
1/2 Anaheim pepper, finely diced

Spread queijo fresco on tortillas and place on a baking sheet; broil till cheese is bubbly and slightly brown. Top tortillas with salsa, tomatoes, onions and peppers. Olé!
