This recipe is easy to personalize; add your favourite ingredients, such as fresh cilantro, black beans, chopped tomatoes, salsa, jalapeno or red pepper flakes, the list goes on.

I opted for a very small portion of mozzarella, since the tuna and avocado mixed together is already quite rich however, you could add an entire layer of cheese, if desired. For those of you don’t like tuna, cooked chicken, finely chopped would work well too.

This recipe couldn’t be any easier to prepare; simply mash the ingredients in a bowl, dollop onto the tostadas then pop into the oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling.
