Guacamole and Shrimp Tostada


You will need

  • 6 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups grated reduced fat or fat free cheddar cheese
  • 2 Avocados
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • Juice from one lime
  • 2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lbs shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tbs ground cumin
  • 1 Tbs chili powder
  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 diced roma tomato
  • Fat free sour cream

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Lightly coat both sides of corn tortillas with cooking spray
  3. Bake for 4 minutes on each side.
  4. Switch oven to low broil.
  5. Evenly distribute cheese over tortillas and broil until cheese is melted and bubbly (Don’t leave your oven, this goes quick! Notice the burnt tortillas in my picture =/)
  6. Remove from heat and set aside.
  7. In a small bowl combine avocados, cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste. Mash with a fork until you have guacamole consistency or you can go here to use my other guacamole recipe.
  8. Toss shrimp with cumin, chili powder, crushed pepper flakes and garlic powder.
  9. Heat oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Sear shrimp on one side for about 2-3 minutes flip and sear other side. Remove from pan.
  10. Add your diced peppers to the same pan you cooked the shrimp in. Sauté for about 2 minutes, scraping the browned bits from the bottom of the pan, seasoning the peppers along the way.
  11. Spoon the guacamole over each cheesy tostada, top with shrimp, bell pepper, tomato, sour cream and a little lime juice.

Top the meal off with chips and eat the rest of the guacamole! Pour a glass of wine and your good to go!
