  • half a lime juiced

Tostadas and Toppings

  • 6 tostadas
  • 2 scallions chopped
  • 2 roma tomatoes (optional) seeds removed and chopped
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce (optional)
  • 5 ounces queso fresco crumbled
  • Mexican Crema or sour cream
  • salsa verde
  • 1 lime cut into wedges

Instructions

Mexican Chipotle Mushrooms

  • Sauté onions with one tablespoon of olive oil or butter over medium heat until translucent. About 2 minutes.
  • Add sliced mushrooms and garlic. Stir.  
  • Add chipotle peppers and salt and pepper to taste. Stir well together and cook for 4-5 minutes or until tender.

Quick Guacamole

  • Mash avocados with a fork and add salt and lime juice.  Mix well.

Prepare Tostadas

  • Top tostadas with guacamole then lettuce and tomatoes (if you are using).
  • Add mushrooms, scallions and queso fresco.
    Sprinkle Mexican crema with a spoon over tostadas and add salsa verde to your liking.
    Top each tostada with a lime wedge.  Enjoy!

Notes

If you cannot find Mexican Crema, you can also use sour cream.  Thin 1/4 -1/2 cup with a tablespoon or two of water.  Then sprinkle sour cream over tostadas with a spoon.
For Homemade Tostadas
Recipe states for store bought tostadas but I normally make my own.
To make fresh tostadas, simply fry one or two corn tortillas at a time in a skillet over medium heat with a tablespoon of oil until golden brown on both sides.  Drain on paper towels.  Corn tortillas will harden and now are perfect tostadas.
