Grilled shrimp, homemade guacamole, fat free refried beans and lettuce on top of a crispy tostada. Super easy and quick – you're going to love these!!


For the guacamole:

  • 1 medium hass avocados (halved)
  • 1/2 plum tomato (seeded and diced)
  • 1/2 lime (juiced)
  • 2 tbsp red onion (minced)
  • 1 small clove garlic (mashed)
  • 1/2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper (to taste)

For the tostada:

  • 16 jumbo shrimp (3/4 lb, shelled and deveined)
  • 1 garlic crushed
  • 2 tbsp prepared salsa verde (or homemade salsa verde)
  • 4 tostada shells
  • 1 cup shredded romaine lettuce
  • 1 cup canned fat free refried beans (love Trader Joe's)

Optional toppings:

  • extra salsa verde (for topping)
  • 2 tbsp crumbled queso blacno (optional)


  • If cooking outside on the grill, soak skewers at least 30 minutes.
  • Place the pulp from the avocados in a medium bowl and slightly mash with a fork or a potato masher leaving some large chunks. Add tomato, lime juice, salt, pepper, cilantro, red onion, garlic and mix thoroughly.
  • Season shrimp with salt, then mix in crushed garlic and 2 tbsp salsa verde. Thread the shrimp onto 4 skewers.
  • Light the grill or indoor grill pan on medium flame, when hot spray the grates with oil and grill the shrimp about 1 to 2 minutes on each side. Set aside.
  • Place a tostada on each plate, top each with 1/4 cup refried beans spread evenly, 1/4 cup lettuce and guacamole.
  • Top each with a shrimp skewer on top and serve with extra salsa verde and cheese if using.
