If you know me, you know how much I love Mexican food and how much I love modern, elegant recipes. Trying to figure out how to use up some tostada shells I had on hand along with a few simple ingredients such as apples and Brie, this recipe was born.
The sweet apples really pair well with Brie cheese, and I even went a step further and topped these off with delicious fig jam. If you enjoy the simple yet elegant flavors found on a classic cheese board, then this recipe will be a keeper. I say crack open a bottle of wine to serve with these lovely tostadas.
