Tostadas are fast, simple and delicious. What better way to please a large gathering of hungry eaters?!?
In South Texas, Tostadas are found on most every Mexican restaurant menu. Tostada quite simply means "toasted," and refers to the corn tortilla that forms the base of what amounts to a delicious, open-faced Mexican pizza.
Tostadas are simple enough to put together for a quick weeknight meal, but also pleasing when you've got a crowd. Consider a Tostada Bar for your next game day - different enough from a taco bar to be memorable, and just as easy to prepare.
You'll start with corn tortillas, not flour, so keep that in mind as you create your grocery list. From there, toppings are your oyster; freshly made refried beans, ground meats, lettuce, pico de gallo, guacamole, crema fresca - you name it, it is meant for a Tostada.
