Confidence Food

We could all learn a little something from Spicy Tostada.

Most meals try to keep everything hidden behind a thin layer of tortilla or corn shell. Like people, they wear a mask to keep everyone from seeing what’s truly on the inside. Spicy Tostada, on the other hand, has no insecurity about sharing its true inner self. It doesn’t care if you see its refried beans, real cheddar cheese, and lettuce. It doesn’t mind if you think its red sauce is maybe too red, or not red enough. Or if its chipotle sauce may be a little hard to pronounce. See, it chooses to be open-faced. It wears its ingredients on its shell because it’s got nothing to hide. Now if only we all could have a little bit of Spicy Tostada’s carefree confidence and attitude, the world would be a better place…

…wait…no no no, it’s a metaphor, keep that on…Oh jeez. You, ummm…really took that whole “open-faced” thing to a place we weren’t expecting.
