  • 1 lb medium shrimp raw peeled
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder or cayenne (see note)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1 cup guacamole or 3 avocados mashed
  • 2 tbsp lime juice freshly squeezed
  • 1 tbsp fresh cilantro chopped


  • 24 tortilla chips large rounds
  • 1 cup queso fresco crumbled, or feta
  • cilantro optional garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, add the shrimp, olive oil, chili powder, cumin powder, paprika and salt. Toss until coated.
  • Place the seasoned shrimp onto the prepared baking sheet space one inch apart. Bake for 5-6 minutes until cooked through. Remove from oven to cool.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together guacamole/avocado with the lime juice and cilantro.
  • Place the chips on a work surface. Spread a spoonful of the avocado mixture onto each to cover. Then add one shrimp to each with a sprinkle of cheese on top.
  • Serve immediately.



  • You can adjust the heat by using more or less chili powder. To make this non-spicy, omit it entirely.
  • These tostadas are best served within 15 minutes of preparing to avoid the guacamole discoloring.
