Lynnda's notes for this recipe:
These are so good. I don't usually fry the tortillas to make the baskets, but drape them over forms and bake them in the oven.

Heat 2 cups oil in deep 1 1/2 quart pot. Using tongs, put tortilla over top of pot and push into hot oil with a metal ladle so that sides of tortilla turn up to form a basket. Fry about 1 minute til golden and crispy. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat process with each tortilla.
Fill basket with layers of warm beans, shredded meat mixture, lettuce and cheese. Top with sour cream, avocado and salsa.
Note: Special frying baskets for tostada shells are available where housewares are sold. Follow manufacturer's instructions for us.

Perfect, I have these large taco pans that I can use for the tostadas.
Then, I can bake, instead of fry! Voila! Thanks Lynnda:-)
