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 tortillas, and It takes a couple of days to make the final product.   We use real corn masa. Usually, if you go to a Hispanic grocery store- you’re more likely to find some.

2.  We have to dehydrated or let the torillias dry. So that it can last for 6-12 months.

4. Once the tortillas are dry- We will fry the tortillas to make tostadas. The oil has to be hot!

– Letting the tostada drained the excess oil on paper towels
