How about another all natural and simple recipe today? Sounds good to me. Have you ever tried to find natural tostada shells in the grocery store? Where I live they all have lard, MSG, or other junk I don’t want in our food. I have figured out how to make tostada shells from corn tortillas.
It is really easy to make your own tostada shells and takes only about 10 minutes. It also saves money over buying the tostada shells. Tostada shells are usually $3 or $4. One package of corn tortillas is usually only a dollar or 2. Perfect! I love it when I can make something more natural and healthy for my family and save money at the same time. It is also great that it is quick and easy. 🙂
Let me show you how to make tostada shells.
You will need corn tortillas, a baking sheet, and canola oil (or other oil) spray.
I can usually fit 6 tortillas on one baking sheet. A rimmed baking sheet is best so the tortillas don’t go sliding off.
Place the tortillas on the baking sheet. Lightly spray them on both sides and place them in a 450 degree oven.
Cook for 5 minutes. Take the baking sheet from the oven and flip the tortillas over. Place back in the oven for about 5 minutes more. Keep a close watch on the tortillas as they very quickly go from done to over done. Remove them from the oven when they are lightly browned.
They are best served warm.
Wasn’t that simple? Love it?
Do you have any other super simple recipes for making something that can be store-bought? Do tell. I’d love to hear.
