Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray two large baking sheets with cooking spray.
  • Lightly spray both sides tortillas with cooking spray and place in a single layer on prepared baking sheets. Lightly season with salt.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, flip them over and bake for another 5-10 minutes, until the tortillas are crispy like a chip.
  • Remove from oven and serve with toppings such as Mexican refried beans, slow cooker carnitas, chicken tinga or juicy shredded chicken.

Notes

Be sure to keep a close eye on the tostadas after the first 5 minutes. If your oven runs hot, they can go from under-cooked to burnt quickly!
They should be crispy and light golden brown when they're ready. Keep in mind that they will dry out and firm up a little once they've cooled.
