What Is a Tostada?
Ole Corn Tostadas are crispy, fried tortillas that are often spread with refried beans or guacamole and topped with vegetables or other ingredients. Popular in Mexico, the tortilla, frequently made with corn, is flat or bowl-shaped after frying and given a layer of guacamole or beans that is thick enough to hold the other toppings. Depending on the region, Ole tostadas can be topped with chicken, pork or seafood and some combination of vegetables and creamy additions such as lettuce, tomato, cheese, onion, cilantro, salsa, and sour cream. The corn tostadas originated as a way to use stale tortillas but evolved into a love-affair food that's as versatile as it is delicious.
Are Corn Tostadas Better For You?
Corn tostadas, of course, are made of corn, which is considered a whole grain. By choosing Ole Corn Tostadas over a flour tortilla, you are eating whole grains that are generally higher in fiber and contain a variety of vitamins and minerals. Corn tostadas are also typically smaller than flour tortillas, so are usually lower in calories.
