These crunchy Cajun Shrimp Avocado Tostadas are ready in a flash! A perfect family friendly meal!
These Cajun Shrimp Avocado Tostadas come together in literally 30 minutes. Great for entertaining or for a super quick-to-fix weeknight meal.
Frying your own tortillas is really easy but if your in a hurry they do make premade tostada shells that will work just fine. Give these tostadas a try on your next taco Tuesday. Your family is sure to love them as much as mine. We are big shrimp lovers in my house…well all except my hubby although he loves it he is allergic to it. Bummer eh? But if you love shrimp as much as we do you have to check out my Spicy Cajun Shrimp Fajitas which is another super quick meal that my family adores.
