Recipe Notes

To make corn tostadas:

  1. Corn tortillas
  2. Oil

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Use a pastry brush to brush the oil onto the front and back of the corn tortillas.

Place the corn tortillas in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake the corn tortillas for 5 minutes, then flip them and bake for 5-10 more minutes, until they are crispy like chips.

Remove them from the oven and finish making your tostadas!
