Since I grew up in Southern California, Mexican flavors are my ultimate comfort food. Anything topped with salsa fits the bill, be it authentic Veracruz cuisine or newer American-style creations. For a simple, seasonal, and light rendition of familiar tostadas, try topping crispy corn tortillas with shredded cabbage, halibut, and spiced yogurt-lime sauce. The tart lime of the fish marinade and the dash of chili powder in the yogurt sauce pair well with almost any salsa - deciding which kind to buy will be the toughest part of the meal. Should it be mango or tomatillo Pico de gallo or picante sauce No matter where your tastes take you, serve the tostada with pinto beans and Mexican rice for a satisfying weeknight fiesta.
