These simple, easy to make tuna avocado melt tostadas combine the essence of Mexican cuisine with the traditional all-American tuna melt. Crunchy corn tostadas covered with a combination of flaky tuna, creamy mozzarella cheese and a heart-healthy dose of avocado.
Dinner time is often ‘crazy time’ for many parents so preparing a meal often leads to frustration and stress. With this easy and quick family-friendly dinner you can rest assured that you will relieve a ton of stress during dinner prep. If your kids like to help in the kitchen this simple meal is a great one to get the kids involved in preparing.
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. These tuna avocado melt tostadas also make great leftovers. Reheat in the microwave or warm in the oven to revive some of the crispiness of the tostadas.
