Tostadas are a delicious and super-easy dish that you can make at home. The contrasting texture of these tostadas with the zucchini and corn is perfect: crunchy tortillas, creamy refried beans, and the smoky touch of grilled vegetables combine to make a treat for your palate. And though it might look like a light dish, I think a couple of these tostadas are perfect for lunch or a weekend dinner, when your grill is on and you want to take advantage of seasonal vegetables. Believe it or not, tostadas are considered a fast-food dish, and they can actually be made with any ingredient on hand: vegetables, beef, pork, chicken, seafood, or just beans with avocado, cheese, and sour cream. I like to put my corn tortillas in a hot oven until they're crunchy, but they can also be fried and topped with a variety of ingredients and stews according to your taste. The important thing to remember is that they're delicious and fun to eat. No silverware needed! Just use your hands and have lots of napkins available. MORE + LESS -
