Flavors of Mexico
Total time: less than 15 minutes
Difficulty: Easy
Chef's Note

In Mexico, a tostada is a small crisp tortilla garnished with a topping, served as an hors d’oeuvre. Here a ceviche mixture is used for the topping.

Chef's tips

The tortilla should be dipped into hot oil for a few seconds to make it like a chip: sturdy and crisp so that it can be picked up with the fingers. Place the topping on only at the last minute so that the tostadas don’t become soggy.
