A note about serious food allergies

Bring a bit of island life into your life, with these messy but perfect tostadas. Coffee is one of the great treats in Hawaii (trust us, its delicious there) and the coffee rub adds earthy warm notes to the meaty ground pork. Sweet pineapple and BBQ sauce bring sticky delight, as does the ginger garlic sauce. All brought together, these tostadas call forth visions of surf and sun. Waving palm trees. Hours on the beach with nothing but a good book and a cold drink. We'll be right back; we have some plane tickets to book. Tip: 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.

Before You Cook

    Make the Tostadas

    Tip: 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. 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.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into ¼" dice. Trim and mince white portions of green onions. Thinly slice green portions on an angle. Keep white and green portions separate. Drain pineapple and halve pieces.

    Sear the Pineapple

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add pineapple to hot pan and cook undisturbed until lightly charred, 2-4 minutes. Transfer pineapple to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

    Make the Topping

    Return same pan used to cook pineapple to medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add red bell pepper to hot pan and cook until starting to soften, 2-3 minutes. Add ground pork, coffee rub, and ¼ tsp. salt. Cook, breaking up meat with a spoon, until pork is mostly browned, 4-5 minutes. Stir in BBQ sauce until sauce coats pork and no pink remains on meat, 1-2 minutes. While pork cooks, make ginger-garlic sour cream.
