Ingredients
  

  • 4 flour tortillas or corn tortillas taco size
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup minced red onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 ripe tomato seeds and pulp removed, chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Additional shredded cheese for garnish, if desired

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray both sides of the flour tortillas with cooking spray. Sprinkle a little bit of salt on each side of the tortilla. Using a fork, poke little holes all over the tortillas. This will prevent them from puffing up in the oven. Place on a large baking sheet and bake for 4-5 minutes, then turn tortillas over, and bake for 2 more minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese evenly on all of the tortillas. Place back and oven and bake just until cheese is melted, about 2 more minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • To make the guacamole, cut the avocados in half and remove the seeds. With a spoon, scoop out avocado from the peel and put in a medium mixing bowl. Mash the avocado with a fork, leaving some chunks. Stir in the lime juice, red onion, cilantro, and tomato. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  • Spread guacamole evenly on tostadas. Top with additional shredded cheese, if desired. Serve immediately.
  • Note-I didn't put jalapeño in the guacamole so the boys would eat it. If you want a kick to your guacamole, feel free to add jalapeño! For gluten-free use corn tortillas.
