    Default Mini Potato Flour Tostadas???

    At a Casino Buffet that is touted to be all "Mexican" on Mondays I had
    what I can best describe as the subject says. I'm told the half-inch
    thick, shallow "bowl" that is filled for these is made with potato
    flour and the consistency is like a very dense bread. For filling/
    building them they had re-fried beans with melted cheese as a first
    layer, then fine-shredded lettuce and chopped tomatoes over, witrh
    sour cream drizzled on top. I loved these wee 4-inch "tostados"
    primarily because of the breadlike base. Can anyone give me a clue on
    what to call them so I can next learn how they are made?
    Thanks much, Picky

    Picky, go back to that casino and ask for the person who makes those
    and find out the recipe. You would be surprised at what they will
    share with you.

    here is a recipe for Tortilla de Patatas - is this it (or a variation)? Not
    at all sure . . .

    yes, you should take that gamble! I'd wager you would come out ahead. Of
    course you need to share your winnings by posting it here.

    I had this lunch at a Casino about an hour's drive that my
    granddaughter, Tiara, took me to after our shopping trip. She says
    there is a shop down street from her home that makes them, so she will
    ask there for us. The base of these is not potato slices, it's made
    with potato flour (and corn meal?) and has a dense bread consistency.
    I can make very good flour tortillas by hand (no rolling pin) that by
    special requests can end up being over 16" diameter, but they are not
    even a quarter-inch thick after correct browning. I suppose I could
    make a test run of really thick, very small torts made with potato
    flour and fine grain corn meal......

    Huaraches or Sopes possibly. Sounds more like Sopes, though:

    Yes, yes, yes! Sopes! the second pix down, of the one made with a
    green chili topping looks exactly like what we had, but for chopped
    tomatoes instead of the green bits sauce. And Sopes made with a
    tamale-like dough is what I tasted...the sweetness coming from the
    corn and the non-bland flavor coming from potato flour instead of all-
    purpose. Thank you so, Jason, methinks we're now on to what I will be
    making soon.

    well, no mention there at all about potato flour, so that was a good find.
