Ahi Tuna Tostadas with Avocado and Chipotle Crema


Jalapeño Smashed Avocado


  • 1 (12-ounce) yellowfin tuna loin filet
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, for searing

Chipotle Crema

  • 6 corn tortillas, fried
  • 6 small cilantro sprigs


Prepare Jalapeño Smashed Avocado: In a small bowl, mash avocado with a fork and mix in the lime juice. Fold in the chopped cilantro, jalapeño and TABASCO® Green Sauce. Season with salt and pepper. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

Prepare Tuna: Season tuna loin with salt, pepper and chili powder. Heat oil in a saute pan on high heat and sear on all four sides until rare, about 45 seconds per side. Let rest 5 minutes. Cut tuna into strips.

Prepare Chipotle Crema: In a small bowl, combine TABASCO® Chipotle Sauce and Mexican crema and set aside.

To assemble, spoon smashed avocado on each fried tortilla and place 2-3 slices of tuna on top. Season the red part of the tuna with a little salt. Finish with a dollop of Chipotle Crema and a sprig of cilantro.

Makes 6 servings.
