Mexican Tuna Salad Tostadas are a healthy and delicious summer meal. A Tostada is a flat corn tortilla that is deep-fried or toasted and can be found at Hispanic grocery stores. If you can’t find them, here’s how:

  • To fry them, add a thin layer of oil to a skillet (1/4″ is fine) and bring up the oil temp to around 360F.   Use tongs to gently add a corn tortilla to the oil.  It’ll need around 30 seconds per side to crisp up, but the exact frying time will depend on how thick the tortilla is.
  • To bake them, preheat oven to 350F.  Add a layer of corn tortillas to a baking sheet and give each side a thin layer of oil.  We usually spray them with an olive oil sprayer but you can just as easily rub some oil on them using your fingers. Bake for 4-6 minutes per side until crisp.
