Goat Cheese Tostadas with Deep-fried Herbs
- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 15m
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 ounce mixture of chopped epazote, hoja santa, parsley, and cilantro; and minced leek (fresh herbs)
- 2/3 cup frijoles refritos (refried beans)
- 2/3 cup guacamole
- 14 ounces 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.
