Avocado Tostadas

Tacos are considered a kings food in my house.  Tostadas are flat tacos, right?  Well, not really.  Tostada means “toasted.”  It’s kind-of hard to toast a taco because all the ingredients are wrapped up inside it’s crunchy shell (or soft shell depending on your preference).  Tostadas and tacos have very similar (if not the same) ingredients, therefore, we are making room for toasty tostadas at the king’s table!  Especially these avocado tostadas!
