Grilled Avocado Tostadas

Grilled Avocado Tostadas

Tostadas Ingredients:

4-12 corn tortillas (depends how hungry you are!)

olive oil



black pepper

Tostadas Method:

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Add parchment paper (or aluminum foil if you do not have parchment) to a baking sheet.

*Spray or brush each side of a tortilla with olive oil (lightly). Sprinkle with a dash of cumin, paprika, and black pepper. Add to baking sheet. Repeat for all tortillas.

*Place baking sheet(s) in oven. Bake for ~10 minutes, or until crispy. Remove from oven and set aside.

Grilled Avocado Ingredients:

1-4 quartered avocados (just ripe)

olive oil

Grilled Avocado Method:

*Preheat grill pan to medium/medium high heat. Spray lightly with olive oil.

*Quarter avocado (remove seed of course) and spray lightly with olive oil. Add quartered avocado to preheated pan. Walk away! Just walk away :D. Do not be tempted to move the avocado around. You'll hear a sizzle. This is good. 

*After ~3-4 minutes, flip your quartered avocado to grill the remaining side. Grill 3-4 minutes. Once grilled, set aside. 

To Serve:

*Layer crispy corn tortillas with your favorite toppings. We used: salsa verde, pico de gallo (see Como Water recipe), lettuce, refried beans, black olives, lime, and vegan sour cream. Add your grilled, smokey yet creamy avocado to the top and enjoy!
