This recipe turned out to be better than I expected. I was a little hesitant about the tomato sauce, since I usually associate it with Italian cooking. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised, because the sauce was yummy! I add fresh lime and cilantro to just about every Hispanic dish I make, so adding these two ingredients really did it for me. If the recipe included these two ingredients, then I would have given it 5 stars. Time saver tip: you can buy the tostadas (already fried) at the grocery store (I did).
