Like the Tostadas de Atun Ahumada, this recipe from El Tajin Restaurant uses tostadas made with flour Tortillas. Goats cheese is a recent addition to the cheeses successfully produced in Mexico. It's smooth, slightly acidic flavor is subtly set off by the crisp, aromatic fried herbs in this recipe by the owner and chef Alicia De Angeli. If the herbs used are not available, any combination of fragrant fresh herbs could be substituted.
4 tablespoons plus 4 cups oil
10x4 inch tortillas de Harina (flour tortillas)
5-oz mixture of chopped epazote, hoja santa, parsley, and cilantro; and minced leek
2/3 cup frijoles refritos (refried beans)
2/3 cup guacamole
14 oz fresh goat cheese, at room temperature, finely sliced

Heat the 4 tablespoons of oil in a frying pan and fry the tortillas until crisp and golden. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

Heat the 4 cups of oil in a deep-fryer. Make sure the herbs and leeks are dry, then deep-fry them for just a few seconds until crisp. Drain and set aside.

On each tortilla, spread approximately 1 tablespoon of frijoles refritos, 1 tablespoon of guacamole, and the sliced cheese.

Top with a sprinkling of the herb mixture and serve immediately.
