Homemade Mexican Tostadas


In our family, we always make everything from scratch especially, Mexican food. A couple of days ago we made tortillas for tostadas using an aluminum machine from Mexico. (as seen below) We usually do about 250 or more individual tortillas , and It takes a couple of days to make the final product.   We use real corn masa. Usually if you go to Hispanic grocery store- you’re more likely to find some.
