Grilled Shrimp Tostados

Created by Jenn's Food Journey

1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon olive oil
24 medium shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
4-6 small tortillas (I used flour)
1/2 cup refried beans (or more if you like
Guacamole (I used Wholly Guacamole)
Shredded lettuce
Cojita cheese


In a small bowl, mix together the first 7 ingredients until well combined. Place the shrimp in a shallow dish and drizzle olive oil over it. Toss to combine. Sprinkle the shrimp with the seasoning mixture and toss to combine. Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Place a pan made for the grill on the grill grates and spray with non-stick oil. Place shrimp on pan and grill for 2-3 minutes per side or until the shrimp are pink and cooked through.

Place the tortillas on the grill over direct heat and grill 1-2 minutes per side or until golden and crispy. Remove from grill and allow to cool for just a minute or two. Top with refried beans, guacamole and lettuce (however much of each you want, this should be to your taste, not mine). Top with 4-6 shrimp, depending on how many tostados you are making, then top with cheese. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
