How about another all natural and simple recipe today? Sounds good to me. Have you ever tried to find natural tostada shells in the grocery store? Where I live they all have lard, MSG, or other junk I don’t want in our food. I have figured out how to make tostada shells from corn tortillas.
It is really easy to make your own tostada shells and takes only about 10 minutes. It also saves money over buying the tostada shells. Tostada shells are usually $3 or $4. One package of corn tortillas is usually only a dollar or 2. Perfect! I love it when I can make something more natural and healthy for my family and save money at the same time. It is also great that it is quick and easy. 🙂
Let me show you how to make tostada shells.
You will need corn tortillas, a baking sheet, and canola oil (or other oil) spray.
I can usually fit 6 tortillas on one baking sheet. A rimmed baking sheet is best so the tortillas don’t go sliding off. These (affiliate link) are the rimmed baking sheets that get the best ratings with Cook’s Illustrated in their tests.
Place the tortillas on the baking sheet. Lightly spray them on both sides and place them in a 450-degree oven.
I’ve got all the directions in the printable recipe, but you will cook them for 5 minutes and then flip them and cook them a little bit more. When you are done, they are perfectly crisp and so delicious. They go great with our family favorite Slow Cooker Tostadas. Perfect for a busy weeknight dinner.
They are best served warm.
Wasn’t that simple? Love it?
