Tilapia Tostada


A simple, cheap, and delicious lunch idea! I created this for lunch today since I have been craving a fresh tasting Mexican dish without the heavy starches and cheeses. Added Bonus: This lunch is packed with protein!

Tilapia Tostada


  • 2 La Banderita Tostadas ($1.00 at WalMart).
  • 2 tablespoons Sabra Classic Guacamole ($3.99 at King Sooper’s); one tablespoon per tostada.
  • 4-ounces fresh tilapia ($7.99 a pound at King Sooper’s in the fresh seafood area); two ounces per tostada.
  • Lime juice
  • Cumin
  • Pepper
