Avocado and Shrimp Fajita Tostadas

"A crispy shell topped with smashed Avocado, fajita-style veggies & shrimp, plus allll the fixins. Yes, please! Full disclosure: the kids were NOT fans of this one. Oh yea..meltdowns, refusal, bribing..the whole nine yards went down. But don’t worry - we LOVED it. Just over here trying to navigate the storm that are kids."
