Protein Guacamole Tostada Recipe
Ingredients
  • 2 ripe Avocados From Mexico,
  • 1/2cup low-fat small-curd cottage cheese,
  • juice of 1/2 lime,(about 1 tablespoon)
  • 1/2teaspoon kosher salt,
  • 1/4teaspoon garlic powder,
  • 1/2teaspoon ground cumin,
  • cayenne pepper to taste,
  • 2tablespoons chopped cilantro leaves,
  • 2 Roma tomatoes,seeded and diced
  • 4 crisp corn tostadas,
  • finely shredded cabbage,
Instructions
  1. Add cottage cheese, lime juice, salt, cumin, garlic powder, and cayenne to a food processor. Pulse several times until mixture is as smooth as possible.
  2. Mash flesh of avocados with a fork. (I like my guacamole pretty chunky, but mash yours as much as you like.) Stir in cottage cheese mixture, cilantro, and tomatoes.
  3. Add additional lime juice, salt, or cayenne to taste.
  4. To assemble tostadas, spread the guacamole evenly over each tostada, and pile some cabbage on top of each one. Olé!
Recipe Notes
  • Fresh avocados have dark, pebbly skin and yield to gentle pressure
  • To speed up ripening, put avocados in a brown paper bag with a banana or apple.
  • To slow down ripening, place the avocado in the fridge.
