This post contains the recipe for homemade vegetarian / vegan tostada shells and a recipe for tostadas topped with salsa, refried beans and cheese
Tostadas are crisp corn tortilla shells that are served with a variety of toppings. Typically made using corn meal and deep fried, baking them yields perfectly acceptable results. You can even use them for making the Fully Loaded Nachos by just replacing the nachos with tostadas. And these are baked, so think of all the guilt you can avoid, or use the saved calories for more cheese! yay!
You can use a variety of toppings on these tostadas. Best is to prep all these little things in advance and putting together appetisers for your next party is a breeze.
If you don’t care for millet or whole wheat flour, by all means use 100% all purpose flour. But the one with the millet flour (bajra / pearl millet) turns out super crisp and you cannot eat them without your family knowing that you are chomping on some fun crispy stuff.
