  3. Making the Salsa: Score and boil the tomatoes in the goose broth. Blend them with the chipotles to create a salsa, adding goose stock and salt for flavor.

  4. Shredding and Frying the Goose: Shred the cooled goose meat. Fry in vegetable oil until golden, seasoning with salt.

  5. Assembling the Tostadas: Layer sour cream, cooked goose meat, homemade salsa, queso fresco, and lettuce on each tostada shell.

  6. Serving: Serve the tostadas immediately to enjoy the fusion of flavors and textures.
