About this Recipe

These tiny tostada bites are a great party appetizer! Let your guests add their own toppings to the tortilla crisps.


1 Pkg Dempster's Corn Tortillas
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb lean ground beef
2.5 tsp taco seasoning
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp lime juice
Refried Bean Paste (optional topping)
Tex-Mex Shredded Cheese (optional topping)
Spicy Salsa (optional topping)
Whole Black Beans (optional topping)
Avocado Slices (optional topping)
Fresh lime juice (optional topping)


To Cook Tortillas:
Preheat oven to 375°F
Line a 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Cut tortillas into 2.5" circles with a pastry cutter
Whisk together olive oil, salt and pepper. Brush the oil mixture on both sides of the circles.
Place tortilla circles in a single layer on the baking sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, flipping over halfway through cooking. Remove from oven when golden brown.
Place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain.

To Cook Beef:
Place a large frying pan over medium heat.
While the pan is heating up, mix the seasonings into the beef.
When the pan is hot, add the oil.
Add the seasoned beef to the oil and cook until well browned.
Add the lime juice, stir, then remove from heat.
Drain on a plate lined with paper towels to remove excess fat.

To Assemble the Bites:
If using refried bean paste, spread some on each crisp. This will help the other ingredients stick to the crisp.
Top with any or all of the optional toppings, adding a squeeze of lime juice on top if desired.
Eat immediately, or else the crisps will lose their texture.
