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.

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 until no pink remains and pork reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-5 minutes.
Stir in BBQ sauce until sauce coats pork, 1-2 minutes.
While pork cooks, make ginger-garlic sour cream.
Make Ginger-Garlic Sour Cream and Finish Dish
In a mixing bowl, combine sour cream, garlic and ginger seasoning, white portions of green onions, and a pinch of salt.
Plate dish as pictured on front of card, spreading ginger-garlic sour cream on tostadas. Add topping and garnish with pineapple and green portions of green onions. Bon appétit!
