How do I make Tostada shells?

The traditional way to make crunchy Tostada shells, is to fry the tortillas. However, I prefer to bake small corn tortillas. The less oil the better.

Start by spraying both sides of the tortillas with cooking spray. You can use olive oil spray, vegetable spray, avocado spray, or preferred. Bake in a 400F oven for about 8-10 minutes on each side, until slightly brown and crispy.

Remove and let them cool completely.
