Tostadas Horneadas (Oven Bake Tostadas)

 
This is a very simple, basic, healthy and easy way to make tostadas.

In México Tostadas are very popular, you can put many types of toppings. My favourite toppings are seafood and fish.

Every tostada starts as a tortilla, maize tortilla, then this tortilla is usually fried in oil and becomes a tostada. But nowadays everybody prefers the healthy option which is the baking tostada. So here in this recipe I show you how to do it.

Makes 6 tostadas

Cook 10 min approx per batch

Ingredients

  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 1/2 rapeseed oil

Method

Heat the oven to 200 degrees, gas mark 6, ten minutes before putting the tortillas in.

On a tray rub the oil and place the tortillas, avoiding putting the tortillas on top of other tortillas.

Bake them for around 10 min or until golden brown.

Listo!

Provecho!
