Here in Guatemala, snacks are a big part of the culture. It’s very normal to go out in the evening to watch the kids playing futbol (soccer) in the town square and have yourself a nice cup of hot something along with a small item of food.
One of my absolute favorite snacks to buy when out and about is the tostada. Now tostadas come in many forms, all of which are delicious. There is the very basic tostada, which is the recipe I’m going to share in a minute, and there are more complicated ones which require the addition of tomato sauce or even a heaping helping of grated cabbage salad.
The basic tostada requires only four ingredients.
The tostada which is a crisp corn tortilla that is either flat or rippled.
Hard Mexican cheese
Avocado or refried beans . . . we made ours with beans.
Take the tostada and spread it with either mashed avocado or refried beans. Then sprinkle a little parsley on top and finish off with some crumbled cheese . . . like so.
