We can travel the world through food and today we are preparing a delicious snack that is a popular street food in Mexico, Central America and South America. A tostada is a crispy tortilla typically made out of corn, however, it can also be made with wheat tortillas. Try making your own Whole Wheat Tortillas using our Project CHEF recipe. You can use a variety of different toppings to build your tostada. Some of our favourites are our Black Bean Dip, fresh Tomato Salsa and of course, Guacamole.

Whole Wheat Tortillas

Tortillas are flatbreads popular in Latin American cuisine, and are eaten at all times of the day. They are often made with corn, a whole grain that is grown abundantly in Latin American countries, but can also be made with wheat, which is plentiful here in Canada. They are readily available in most grocery stores, but often, the package lists ingredients that we don’t recognize! When we make tortillas at home, we know all of the ingredients. This is a fun project to try, perhaps for Taco Tuesday?

Yield: 8 x 20cm (8”) tortillas
Preparation Time: including resting time, about 40 minutes
Cooking Time: about 10 minutes
