Meaning “toasted,” tostada on a Mexican restaurant menu refers to a corn tortilla that is formed into a bowl and fried crisp. It is used to hold the same sort of ingredients that fill a burrito. Even flat fried corn tortillas can be the basis of a tostada. On supermarket shelves, Tostitos Scoops are a miniature version that are easy to fill or dip.
