I made myself a yummy tostada or fried green plantain for lunch this week. The delicious topping was this Guacamole and shrimp. I enjoyed it very much and hope you do too!
I would love to have that as a lunch too! How delicious!
I have always wanted to learn how tom make tostadas like this so thanks for sharing. I also like your guacamole recipe!
Erica I love your recipes. Are you no longer living in Colombia??Where are you now?Hope you are having a nice weekend. Thanks for the lovely recipes and photos.
Thank you so much for your wonderful comment! I moved to the United States 10 years ago.
Another winner...and oh I just had this lovely scrambled egg recipe you had put up for breakfast a few days ago. ITS GORGEOUS. I also added a bit of paprika ( I am such a paprika fan) and some sun dried tomatoes to boot. The whole idea is simply great. Thought you would like to know 🙂 🙂
Jhonny-Thank you so much!
Yum this looks delicious, although I have never eaten plantain before.
Erica although I did'nt know ANYTHING about columbian food when I first came to your website, you have thought me SO MUCH. I am now entertaining the notion that Columbian food is extremely delicious and sooooooo pretty too. Most of all, thanks to your recipes I have a chance to try making these at home. This is so gorgeous ...REALLY !

Thank you all for visiting 🙂
Okay this is what I get coming over here hungry! LOL, but I love plantains, any way you serve them up and especially this way...
Anything with plantains, shrimp AND guacamole has got to be phenomenal. I cannot wait to try.
I love plantains but have only had them in restaurants...I don't even know if I can get them in the markets here...will look because I love them
Thank you everyone for the comments! I love tostadas.....they are absolutely delicious!
I love your recipes! But please remind all of Non COLOMBIANS that is is NOT ColUmbian food...or ColUmbian coffee, it is ColOmbian food, ColOmbian coffee! ColUmbia has Nothing to do with ColOmbia other than kind of the sound or the spelling. The letter O makes a big, BIG difference!
Changing the subject here, this recipe looks so yummy! How do I make the plantain? It is huge!
Thanks for the taking the time to share this wonderful food!
