Chef's Note

In Mexico, a tostada is a small crisp tortilla covered with a topping and served as an hors d'oeuvre.

Chef's tip
The tortilla should be fried in hot oil for a few seconds to become a crispy chip that can be picked up with the fingers. Add the topping at the last minute so the tostada doesn't get soggy.
