These Shrimp Tostadas are filled with scrumptious shrimp and layered with beans, vegetables and a homemade pico de gallo. These will be a winner in your home.
Life is in fast forward mode and I can’t seem to stop it. My son will be starting his first season of soccer in Vegas and I’m so excited for him. He’s been dying to play and we had to wait it out until Spring season started. The only down fall about this soccer season will be that I have to drive 40 minutes to his practices and games.
Before we moved I was used to dropping him off and heading home for the 2 hours. I would normally make dinner during this time, but with the soccer field being 40 minutes away I’ll need to make and feed the family before we leave.
With knowing this and trying to be semi-organized I’ve been trying to compile all of my easy recipes. That way when the time comes I have a huge list to work off of.
If you’ve been around my blog then you know my love for Mexican food. I’m obsessed with it and can eat it all day, every day. These shrimp tostadas are no different. I used a food hack to make them. I wanted to have they taste delicious, but without having to add all of the ingredients and taking a long time. I needed a recipe that had all the same great taste, but take less time to make.
Enter SeaPak® Shrimp Scampi. Have you guys eaten these delicious shrimp? If you haven’t then you need to try them asap! They are located in the frozen aisle of Walmart and taste amazing. You can use this shrimp in all sorts of dishes. One of the many reasons I love this Shrimp Scampi is because it’s already coated with butter, garlic and seasonings. When you cook the shrimp it gives you this amazing aroma and taste. Great for all sorts of recipes.
We also love cooking up some SeaPak Beer Battered Shrimp. We always have to get the party size because between the hubby and son, I never get any. Ha! I love how fresh and easy these SeaPak shrimps are. Simply delicious!
