WHAT IS A TOSTADA?
Tostada in Spanish translates to “toasted”. A toasted corn tortilla the base of the dish is topped with various fillings and salsas. Tostadas are very popular in Texas, you can find them topped with anything from shredded chicken, carnitas, shrimp or simply refried beans, shredded lettuce and tomato, a popular menu item on kids’ menu in Tex-Mex restaurants.
For this recipe I used pre-made tostada shells from my local grocery store, but you can easily make tostada shells at home without having to fry. I prefer to bake my tostada shells as I can bake a big batch, and no messy frying oil.
