In Mexican cuisine, the tostada is an appetizer that begins with a fried corn tortilla, fried in oil for about one minute (30 seconds per side) until it became hard and crispy. It can be made by toasting on a hot griddle or fried in oil. People also commonly buy them ready-made at the store: they are relatively easy to find. The tostada can then be garnished with a layer of blended bean paste and then layered with any stew or boiled vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, avocado, grated cheese and some salsa. In some places we also add marinated chilies, tomato, sour cream, salt and ham. Tostadas can also be prepared with a single ingredient, or combined in others dishes such as ceviche.
