Tostada meets quesadilla in these Mexican vegan mushroom pepper tostadillas ! Tortillas baked in the oven until crunchy then filled with a spicy mushroom & bell pepper mix and cheese and baked again to reach crispy melty cheesy vegan tostada perfection.
If a Mexican version of a veggie and cheese sandwich sounds like your thing you will love these vegan mushroom tostadillas!
They are like a quesadilla but baked instead of pan-fried – so more like a tostada. But I’ll explain the difference in a second and just call these tostadillas for now. Some might know these under Mexican Pizzas. You can call them whatever you want as long as you try them because these are delish. Admittedly, they are messy to eat! So not the best thing to serve for a first date – but every bite is a heavenly combination of crunchy – toasty and savory- cheesy that will make you fall in love with these double-decker vegan tostadas!
What are tostadas?
Tostada is Spanish and means “toasted”so tostada can refer to various Mexican / Latinamerican dishes which are toasted or use a toasted ingredient. But to keep it simple – Mexican tostadas, (in diminutive also called Tostaditas) are typically wheat tortillas that are baked, deep-fried or toasted in a pan until crispy, then topped with whatever you like! Refried beans, grated cheese, chopped avocado and tomato, sliced lettuce, and salsa are the most common toppings.
For this recipe, we adopt the tostada concept but make our vegan tostadas twice as delicious by adding a second layer of tortilla and cheese on top of the bottom layer and serving it with typical tostadas toppings. So a cross between quesadilla and tostadas.
