tostadas3 Tostadas are one of my go to quick and easy when I am tired or we are having a busy day. The great thing about them is they are customizable . Pretty much anything you’d like on a taco would be great on a tostada. This is another post that is more method than recipe but I will share how I made them last night.

A variation of the usual tacos and burritos.

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Various amounts: lettuce, tomato, onions
  • 1/4 cup oil, for frying corn tortillas

Cooking Directions

Heat oil in a small skillet. Cook corn tortillas until crispy if not using premade tostada shells.
