Remove pork from cooker. Using two forks, shred pork. Reserve half of the pork (about 3 cups) and 2 cups of the sauce; store as directed below. Mix the remaining pork with 1/2 cup of the sauce. Discard any remaining sauce.
4.
Spread refried beans over tostada shells. Top evenly with pork mixture. Divide greens, tomato, avocado, and cheese evenly among tostadas. Top each with sour cream. Makes 4 servings and reserves.
