I just spent a weekend in Tahoe with ten other food bloggers. Would you believe we didn’t eat Mexican food even once? We did have guacamole one time, which was delicious, but not a full Mexican meal.

Three days is surely the longest I’ve gone without Mexican food in quite a while, so of course we had tostadas and margaritas when I got home on Sunday. Then we had them again the next day because I wanted to doctor them up with this easy corn salsa and take photos. There were no complaints about the repeat dinner because they were so tasty and fun!

Speaking of this weekend, a big topic of conversation was video. It seems that a lot of people would rather watch video instead of (or in addition to) reading about how to make a dish. In answer to that, here’s a quick video showing how to make this quick and easy corn salsa and prepare the tostadas for the oven. If you like it, I would really appreciate if you could give it a thumbs up! Thanks!

Now that I’ve shown you how easy it is to make this Mexican dinner recipe, don’t you want to have it tonight? We’ve eaten tostadas for two nights straight, so we might take a break tonight. Enjoy an extra one for me! Oh, and don’t forget the fresh margarita to go with it!

Ingredients

Scale

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or aluminum foil to make cleanup easy.
  2. Stir together corn, tomatoes, cilantro, lime, and salt. (This salsa could also be used on its own for dipping.)
  3. Spread refried beans evenly over tostadas, being careful not to press too hard and crack the tostadas as you work. Arrange tostadas in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet as you go.
  4. Spread corn salsa evenly over each tostada, and then sprinkle cheese over the corn. Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until cheese is fully melted.
  5. Transfer hot tostadas to plates and top with cabbage, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa as desired. Dig in!

Made tonight. YUMMY! I added some shredded rotisserie chicken over the beans. And I thought for sure I had Rotel on hand but when I didn’t find any in my pantry I decided to just throw a jar of salsa together with the corn/lime/cilantro, which worked out fine. I’ll make with Rotel next time.
I didn’t have cabbage but sliced up some Romaine lettuce and diced onion, tossed with a splash of red wine vinegar and put that on top. What an easy recipe to throw together! Hubby loved.
Next time I’ll try it with steak or other type of beef just because it’s so versatile that way. Thanks for this keeper, Andi. :-)

Your trip sounded like so much fun! I would be craving for a big plate of these if I didn’t have them all weekend long. They look so good and I love how easy they are to make! Your video is awesome too! I just shot my first video last week and am still learning how to edit it. You are so adorable in yours, they all look awesome :)

Thank you so much, Kelly! I’m still trying to figure out what the heck I’m doing with videos, but I’m having fun with it as I go.

I think Tostada Tuesday should be a thing. Just saying. Also, I need to get a different camera so I can take videos for my blog. I think you and your blogger group are on to something!

Yes! Tostada Tuesday! Let’s start the movement, Jenny. I don’t have a special camera for video. I’m far from an expert, but I use my same DSLR camera for videos but with the kit lens. I was resisting making videos because I don’t know what I’m doing, and I look like crap 95% of the time. Zooming in to just show my hands took the pressure off having to have myself and my house in presentable condition. You should go for it! Join me in YouTube mediocrity ;)

Thank you! I’m actually kind of loving making videos even though I dragged my feet on it. I have another one coming tomorrow. Great to hear from you, Heather! xo

As a person who loves Mexican cuisine, I cannot believe you went three days without it! Haha. These look wonderful and really simple. I have actually never made tostadas before (gasp!) but I sure want to!
