8 ounces boneless pork chops, cubed into bite sized pieces

1 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce, finely minced

1 cup low fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1 medium avocado, mashed
2 smalls Roma tomatoes, diced
1 cup baby spinach, shredded
4 tablespoons low fat sour cream


Heat garlic oil over medium heat in non-stick skillet. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes until very tender and starting to brown. Add pork, lime juice, chili powder, cumin and Chipotle and cook another 5 – 8 minutes until pork is no longer pink. Remove from heat.
Heat heavy skillet over medium heat and toast one corn tortilla for 1 – 2 minutes on one side, then flip. Top with 1/4 cup cheese and cook until cheese melts.
Remove tortilla and top with 1/4 pork mixture, some spinach, tomato, mashed avocado and sour cream.




I won’t try to convince you that these tostadas rivaled the Carne Asada at our favorite restaurant, but they were really good. I have to admit, I saved a few hundred calories too!
