Tips to Make This Easy Avocado Tostada for
- A great way to make a crispy tostada is to 'dry fry' it in a frying pan over a medium high heat with no oil. This is also much healthier too! Watch it carefully since it won't take long to toast!
- A potato masher is a useful tool to make the pea guacamole.
- If your tortillas are a few days old try brushing them with water before warming. It will help bring them back to life.
- Seasoning is key when making guacamole! Don’t over season but try to taste as you go along to make sure you add enough salt.
What to serve with Avocado Tostadas with Fried Egg
This recipe makes a delicious meal at any time of the day and would go perfectly with some black beans, some creamy refried beans or rice.
You could add also cherry tomatoes, red onion, green onions or any of your other favorite toppings.
To ramp up the protein and turn this into cheesy guacamole tostadas you could also add some queso fresco or cotija cheese.
If you like heat feel free to add some hot sauce or a spinkling of chili powder too - or some sour cream to cool things down.
