Basic Baked Tostadas

Basic Baked Tostadas are a great alternative to the more usual deep-fried. Tostadas are traditionally made with stale tortillas, so the frying helps the taste and texture, but deep-frying can involve a lot of unhealthy fats so what to do if like me you don't want to give up their crunch? This easy, healthy solution keeps crisp, crunchy tostadas on the menu.
