Do you ever wonder if tostadas were the first version of the modern-day nachos that we all love? I mean, crisp tortillas mounded with your choice of toppings? Sound familiar?

For this recipe, Jon is using Irish Seafood Brown Crab from Ryan’s Grocery, and to pay tribute to this beautiful seafood, he’s serving it with chopped avocados and crispy tortilla. 

All you need is a little lime zest and juice, chopped chilli, chopped coriander and a couple more pantry staples for this crab meat tostada topping. 

Once you have all the ingredients, prepare and organise the disparate components, assembling each tostada is quick and easy!
