Tostada is Spanish for 'toasted' - and in Latin American cuisine tostadas refer to dishes that feature a toasted or deep fried tortilla. Corn tortillas are typically used, but you can use flour ones also.
What a delicious surprise! I used 2 full eggs instead of 4 egg whites. I also mixed in some diced red peppers with the eggs and topped with freshed diced tomato instead of salsa. I really enjoyed it and it was very filling. - 25 Mar 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
MMMMMMM good yummy lunch. I prefer to use the egg white in a carton as it tastes much like regular eggs. Other than that and adding a little green onion, I loved it! Thanks Camille! - 13 May 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
My changes seem greater considering the simplicity of the recipe but I wanted to review it anyway. I used my small skillet and egg beaters, simply poured in the egg, added some leftover diced green pepper and covered-no scrambling. When it was cooked through I used the same burner to warm the tostada for a couple of seconds per side. I then put the perfectly-sized egg on the tostada and topped with the cheese(sharp cheddar) and a little green onion. I didn't have any salsa so used several dashes of chipotle hot sauce(tobasco) on top and this was very good. I liked the crunch of the shell. It was a nice change from breakfast burritos. - 17 Apr 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
