Tostadas de Ceviche de Pulpo “La Guerrerense”

From one of Baja's most known culinary figures Sabina Bandera of La Guerrerense, this ceviche de pulpo tostado is mouth-watering.

La Guerrerense’s Sabina Bandera developed this recipe in Ensenada, Mexico where she has maintained her famous seafood stall for over 40 years. Baja California is the only part of Mexico that grinds fish and seafood ground and doesn’t serve it in small cubes. La Guerrerense follows this regional culinary tradition in her pulpo recipe. — Editors’ Note
