Expert Tips

Shred the lettuce, dice the tomato and shred the cheese; store them in separate plastic bags or small serving bowls in the refrigerator.

To let each person build an individual tostada, set out additional toppings such as chopped red or green bell pepper, sliced ripe olives, sliced jalapeño peppers and light sour cream.

Enjoy the tostadas with lime flavored sparkling water and end the meal with orange or lemon sorbet.
