Tostadas Recipe — Guatemala
Start to Finish: 30 minutes
- 3-5 large avocados, halved and pitted
- 1/2 onion, finely diced
- Juice of 2 limes
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 12 corn tortillas
- Oil for frying (canola or olive)
- Prepared guacamole (see above)
- 1 jar red salsa
- 1 can refried beans
- 10 ounces of queso seco (crumbling cheese), or any cheese, grated
- Chopped cilantro
Into a large bowl, scoop the avocado from its shell. Mash it with a fork to desired consistency. Stir in onion, lime juice and oregano. Salt and pepper to taste.
In a large skillet on medium-high heat, pour a half inch of oil. When the oil is hot, add the tortillas in a single layer and fry until crispy. Transfer to a plate with a paper towel to drain excess oil. Once the tortillas have cooled, spread three tortillas with guacamole, three with refried beans and three with salsa. Garnish with cheese and cilantro.
