Tostadas in Mexico are generally eaten on the streets, where you can find “puestos” that sell them. Tostadas are also a common in mexican families to eat at home, because they’re easy and fast to fix.

You can use your imagination to creat your own tostada style! – You can mix vegetables, pork, chicken, and also yesterday’s food that was left by your children.

Also, tostadas could be considered as a middle-night snack…
