A note about serious food allergies

This tasty little south-of-the-border treat gives the shrimp some real love; a blackening seasoning that doubles the flavor of these little crustaceans. Crumbly, messy tostadas double the fun, with a crunchy tortilla topped with creamy guacamole. Double the flavor, double the fun… this sounds like a gum commercial from the 80s. Tip: Best way to remove ribs and seeds from a red bell pepper? Cut off top and bottom of pepper, then either carefully cut or tear out the seed portion.

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 16 oz. shrimp, follow same instructions as 8 oz. shrimp, working in batches if necessary.

  • If using diced chicken, pat dry and season all over with seasoning blend. Follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 4, stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes.

  • If using ground beef, follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 4, cooking with seasoning blend and breaking up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as shrimp in Step 4, cooking with seasoning blend and breaking up burger until heated through, 4-6 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Creamy Guacamole

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ½" dice. Halve and peel onion. Cut halves into ¼" dice. In a mixing bowl, combine guacamole and sour cream. Set aside. Pat shrimp dry and, on a clean cutting board, halve lengthwise. Season all over with seasoning blend.

  2. 2

    Bake the Tostadas

    Tostadas are a delicious, but messy treat. For this recipe, they can easily be converted to tacos. Simply warm tortillas in oven for 1-2 minutes after completing remaining steps. Poke tortillas with a fork all over, 10 times for each tortilla. Place tortillas on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and massage oil into tortillas. Bake in hot oven until browned and crispy, 5-7 minutes. While tortillas bake, make topping.

  3. 3

    Start the Topping

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add onion to hot pan and stir occasionally until beginning to soften, 1-2 minutes. Add red bell pepper and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until lightly charred and tender, 3-5 minutes.

  4. 4

    Finish the Topping

    Working in batches if necessary, add shrimp and a pinch of pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until shrimp reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes. Remove from burner.

  5. 5

    Finish the Dish

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping tortillas with creamy guacamole and topping, and garnishing with cheese and crispy onions. Bon appétit!
