I have had a tostada obsession lately and I’m not ashamed! Few weeks ago, I had a major craving for Mexican food but I couldn’t find those ready made tostada shells in the grocery store so I decided to fry some corn tortillas at home and I seriously cannot back to the pre packaged ones ever again. These breakfast tostadas are pretty simple to make (aside from frying up the actual corn tortilla) because I use refried black beans, and simple toppings like onions, radishes and and avocados! I had some of my moms falafel chutney in the fridge which I absolutely love on Mexican food so I used that for these but I’m also listing some options below. My favorite is the cilantro jalapeño sauce because its a classic and really pairs well with this- I also loveeeeeee my Masi’s garlic chutney on eggs so that would be an absolutely GREAT choice to top these off with! Linking the recipes below!

Tips on frying tortillas:
- Use corn tortillas for authentic flavor
- Fry the tortillas in a few inches of oil and as soon as you remove them from the oil, sprinkle with kosher salt or sea salt immediately.
- If your tortillas are puffing up too much in the oil, use a small knife to place a few slits in the tortilla and then fry them
