T is for Tostadas

Today for lunch we decided to make nachos with homemade tostadas(tortilla chips). Making your own chips seems like a hassle but it's actually quite easy and the chips are so tasty!

I fried mine in lard on the stovetop in a cast iron skillet. Use corn oil or vegetable oil if you must but lard really makes them awesome. Use white or yellow corn tortillas & cut them in wedges.

As the chips came out of the pan we dusted them with sea salt and a sprinkling of corn seasoning from crate & barrel I had recieved as a gift- it was a great addition to the chips.

Once all the chips were fried we spread them on a bakung pan, topped with refried beans and shredded cheese and popped them into 350 oven til the cheese was melted and beans were bubbly. Serve with salsa & enjoy!
