    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    tostadas

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oven to 450 degrees. Cover a large baking sheet with foil. Lay tortillas on sheet and spray with cooking spray. Turn over and spray other side. When oven is heated, bake for 10-15 minutes or until light golden brown. They may still appear floppy, but will become crispy as they cool. Remove and place on plate covered with paper towels. Blot with a paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
    2. 2
      In a small bowl, combine the cumin, garlic powder, pepper, salt, chili powder, brown sugar, and oregano. Put the olive oil in a ziptop bag and mix in all but 1 tablespoon of the spice mix. Add the garlic and shrimp; massage to coat. Set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat a 12-inch sauté pan over medium-high heat, and, when hot, coat with cooking spray. Add the sliced onion and sauté until softened and fragrant and starting to brown, about 4 minutes. Add the chile and bell pepper and continue to sauté for 2 minutes. Add the remaining spice mixture and sauté until the onion and chiles are tender but not mushy, another 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Return the skillet to medium high heat and add the shrimp. Cook, stirring frequently, until the shrimp are cooked through, 2-3 minutes. Add the sautéed vegetables; toss to combine and reheat.
    4. 4
      Spread a small amount of guacamole on tostada. Spread a small amount of sour cream over guacamole, then add some lettuce. Add some sauteed vegetables and top with shrimp. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro.
    5. 5
      Serve with additional sour cream and guacamole.

      Delicious! Great flavor! I was a bit hesitant regarding the brown sugar ingredient at first, but an ancho chili (a Mexican chili used in many authentic Hispanic dishes) has a hint of sweetness to it's spicy. This combination of flavors is very similar. I wanted to give it a 5, but my boyfriend rated it a 4 (as it wasn't "the best he ever had" - which includes restaurants in actual Mexico!) Will definitely add this to my repertoire for special meals. Thanks, Gailanng!
