I am on a bender- a Mexican food bender.

I don’t need an intervention.

I have complete control.

I swear.


Spicy Shrimp Tostadas

  • 1/2 lb raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Spices: cumin, Old Bay, salt, pepper, cayenne, chili powder, etc
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced thinly
  • 2 poblano peppers, sliced thinly
  • 2 onions, thickly sliced
  • 1 can black beans, seasoned with spices and warmed through
  • Pam
  • 4 tostada shells (you can make them at home this way)
  • Garnish with cilantro, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, cheese

Place your vegetables on a baking sheet and broil on low until they start to blacken on the edges, about 10 minutes. Spray a skillet with Pam and add the shrimp. Sprinkle with desired spices. Fry until just cooked (overcooked shrimp is gross!). On a plate, layer your tostadas in this order: tostada shell, black beans, peppers and onions, shrimp, cheese. Repeat. Serves 2.
