Mexican Tostadas


Mexican Tostadas

Rachel Hartman - Missionary Wife in Latin America
This is a common dish served at Mexican gatherings. The tostadas and toppings are usually set out in buffet style. This gives everyone a chance to create a tostada that is filled with their favorite ingredients. In this way, it appeals to many people and is a fun group meal! We often prepare them for guests and our kids all have their favorite version of a tostada that fits their taste preferences!
