Corn Salsa Tostadas Recipe

Corn Salsa Tostadas Recipe

"I made these 'South-of-the-Border' treats when I have a craving for something a little spicy," writes Laurie Todd, Columbus, Mississippi. "These bite-size morsels are as tasty as they are attractive. They make fun appetizers for a party, too."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 flour tortillas (8 inches)
  • 3/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 3 teaspoons minced fresh cilantro, divided
  • 2 green onions, finely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 plum tomato, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped jalapeno pepper
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. Using a 2-in. round cookie cutter, cut 12 circles from each tortilla. Coat both sides of circles with cooking spray. Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 4-5 minutes or until crisp. Cool.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, 1 teaspoon cilantro, onions and garlic powder; cover and refrigerate. In another bowl, combine the corn, tomato, jalapeno, orange juice, oil, salt and remaining cilantro; cover and refrigerate. Just before serving, spread 1 teaspoon sour cream mixture over each tostada. Using a slotted spoon, top each with a teaspoonful of corn salsa. Yield: 3 dozen.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
