Appetizer, Mexican

Corn n Mushroom tostadas


Tostadas are crisp tortillas which are usually fried and topped with variety of ingredients. It is a flattened, crispy taco or a crunchy flatbread. Deep-frying has never been a preferred method of mine – so I make the tostadas crunchy by toasting them with a drop of oil on a flat skillet and roasting it directly on a flame. 

Do a quick 10 minute stir-fry of roasted corn, mushrooms and black beans. Make it extra spicy and add a touch of mexican seasoning. 

Finish off the tostadas with a whipped avocado dressing on top – avocado, cilantro, and jalapeño with a squeeze of lemon.
