A note about serious food allergies

Zanahorias sounds complicated, fancy, and beyond your 12th grade Spanish, but it is only the humble, unassuming, and delicious carrot. Zanahorias take a central role in these crunchy tostadas; carrot pieces mixed with corn and a spicy seasoning blend are served atop a bed of mashed carrot. Slaw, pepitas, and a chipotle aioli add heat and crunch. Zanahorias, where have you been all our lives? (Hiding in plain sight as carrots!)
