Thank you to the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) for making this shrimp tostadas with chipotle cream possible. All comments, opinions and my love for exploring new cultures, spices and flavor combinations are my own!

Lately, my husband and I keep mentioning to each other how much we enjoy seafood. It’s very versatile, isn’t it? It can be served in so many ways, is quick and easy, and the kids love it, which is a huge plus.

So it’s no surprise that we serve up a lot of it, and, come to think of it, it’s time to restock the freezer because we always like to have plenty handy for fast, convenient, and nutritious meals.

This recipe for shrimp tostadas is incredibly simple, but still so extraordinarily satisfying and delicious. I just had to share it with you.

I love how the cool sour cream balances out the kick from the chipotles and I enjoy the crunch of the shrimp and tostadas together, which are brought to perfection with just a hint of salt and lemon.

Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the only thing I have to do is heat up the shrimp in the oven, which makes this recipe incredibly convenient for me…and you. The whole dish is like an easy-to-make treat that’s still high in protein and made with real, quality ingredients. Enjoy!
