Baja Fish and Avocado Tostada
Your go-to weeknight dinner cheat just arrived. You can make a tostada out of basically any ingredients as long as you start with a crisped tortilla. We like to bake ours right on the oven rack at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Go with 6-inch whole-grain corn tortillas instead of flour, and you'll save about 30 calories and 200mg sodium. Then just top with these fun flavor combos, and crunch. They're the perfect build-your-own superfast fare—so healthy and delicious, you'll want two.
In this first tostada, creamy avocado sits atop pan-seared tilapia for a fresh and flavorful meal.
