Perhaps you have heard of made Mexican road corn? Like its name implies, Mexican road corn is generally sold in small food stands across roads in Mexico where there is plenty of tourists and pedestrians walking about. It is often sold to the cob or in a cup also can be slathered in mayo, cotija cheese, cheese powder and spices and herbs. It could sound a little odd if you have never needed it earlier, but trust me, even the moment you attempt it, you are going to get on it.
Do not understand exactly what a tostada really is? I have got you. It is essentially a giant, spherical, thick tortilla chip which you just top with everything your little heart desires and you pick it up and eat it just like a pizza. I mean, what exactly does not seem great about this? I bought the tostadas in my neighborhood grocery shop in the Nordic food aisle, however in case you can not find them there, then you may want to visit an ethnic/Hispanic grocery shop close to you. Since they have got everything. Should you make this recipe, then allow me to know in the comments below.
