A note about serious food allergies

“Ladies and gentlemen, in one corner, we have Greek cuisine, fit and feisty, famous for their funky feta and tremendous tzatziki… In the other corner, trained with strict discipline, the last two centuries of tacos, burritos, and enchiladas, Mexican cuisine, the crowd favorite. The bell rings and we're off! That's a haymaker from Greece, we're seeing a lot of olives and tomatoes on that one. Wait, wait… that's a left jab from Mexico, and tortillas are flying everywhere. It looks like they're both going down, folks, on the mat… but folks, we all are winners from this tie, as these Greek zucchini tostadas are better than any bout.” Tip: Best way to chop a cucumber? Quarter lengthwise, cut those quarters into cubes, then chop.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using a protein, cook in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat with 2 tsp. olive oil. If using diced chicken, pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using steak strips and flank steak, separate into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until no pink remains and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. If using shrimp, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until opaque and shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. Add proteins to tostadas as desired.

  1. 1

    Bake the Tortillas

    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 steps, omitting this step.

    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, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve tomatoes.

    Halve and peel shallot. Cut one half into thin slices and other half into 1/4" dice.

    Trim zucchini ends, quarter lengthwise, and cut into 1/4" wedges.

    Trim cucumber and finely chop.

    Mince garlic.

  3. 3

  4. 4

    Cook the Zucchini

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil, zucchini, and diced shallot to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned and tender, 4-5 minutes.

  5. 5

    Make Tzatziki and Assemble Tostadas
