I decided to try some Tostadas. I would always see the shells at the store. I was unfamiliar with them. The first time I tried them, I baked them in the oven. They were good, but they took long, and I sort of overcooked them. I looked up the Microwave directions. I made some ground beef with a little pepper, a little Sazon Perfecta spice. I cut up some cilantro and sliced a lime in half. I simply put three of these on a plate, edges touching but apart, and microwaved them for 45 seconds. Well it’s a real winner! I will make them again, they were very good. For only $1 there are at least 2 dozen in there and maybe more. When microwaved they are the same as the oven. Warm, and very crunchy, not tough or limp. Refried beans are a popular choice to spread on the Tostada, because they are sticky and anchor the other ingredients, but you don’t have to. Eat them over a paper plate! Avocado, tomato and cheese are popular toppings. You can put bananas on them if you want. They are very economical.
I got a jar of jalapeno from Dollar Tree. When I made the ground beef for the last batch of tacos, I made them in the jalapeno juice. It was very good. I liked it a lot.
