Slice avocados in half with a sharp knife and remove the large seeds. Then scoop out the flesh of the avocado halves with a spoon and add to a large prep bowl.
Add in lime juice, salt and pepper to taste and mash with a spoon or fork until your desired texture is reached. Set aside and prepare remaining ingredients.
Cilantro Lime Slaw
Combine shredded green cabbage, lime juice, salt, pepper, and fresh cilantro to a medium sized prep bowl. Gently toss to combine and set aside and prepare the shells.
Homemade Tostada Shells
Lay corn tortillas in an even layer on a large baking sheet. Mist both sides with olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper.
Bake at 425 degrees F for 8-10 minutes flipping halfway through. The tortillas should be crispy and slightly browned. While the tortillas are baking cook the vegetables. *You can also use store bought shells and skip this step.
Slice and chop your red onion. Remove the ribs and seeds and chop the orange pepper into small pieces. Slice and chop the zucchini into small pieces and gently salt to release any excess moisture.
Add chopped vegetables, frozen corn, lime juice, salt, pepper, cumin and paprika to a large skillet. cook on medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes until vegetables are soft and fragrant. Once cooked move on to assembling the tostadas.
Begin by gently smearing some warm refried beans on each tostada shell. I usually use ¼-1/3 of a cup for each one.
Next, divide and smear on some of the mashed avocado over top of the refried beans.
Divide the cooked veggies between the 6 tostadas and add over top of the mashed avocado.
Finally sprinkle on some of the cilantro lime slaw over top of everything. You can customize a bit more and add some cheese (my favorite is cotija), salsa, sour cream, hot sauce, fresh cilantro, or more. Enjoy!
Leftover Storage: I recommend storing all of the tostada elements separately and assembling when ready to eat. The shells can be stored at room temperature, the rest of the elements need to be stored in the fridge.Time Saver Tip: You can make the slaw, and tostada shells ahead of time and store accordingly to save or prep time when making this meal.Pro Tip: Be sure not to overload the tostadas when assembling them or they will be difficult to eat and could break. *Nutrient Information does not include optional toppings
