Easy + Delicious Shrimp Tostada Bites, perfect for a party! Pizzazzerie.com

Happy January, y’all! I can’t believe the holidays are over, but of course…around here, there’s always a reason to celebrate! Whether it’s a birthday, a baby shower, game night, or just a festive dinner with the family, I wanted to share my easy recipe for shrimp tostada bites! They’re easy to make for a crowd, always the first to disappear at my parties, and quite colorful might I add! They’re one or two bites each so it’s perfect for mixing and mingling! This is a true year-round favorite for party appetizers in my house!

If you want to save time, make the tortilla rounds a day ahead and warm them once your layer of beans is on. I like to keep tortilla rounds like these on-hand to create easy last-minute party bites. They can virtually be topped with anything (diced chicken and guacamole, for example) for a variety of delicious appetizers. To make the rounds, I used a 1 1/2″ cookie cutter. This fit a small shrimp very nicely but you can easily make whatever size your heart desires!

Make mini tortilla rounds!

You could even make these heart-shaped for Valentine’s Day dinner or a party! Or fold in half for mini-tacos! I love the versatility of this recipe because it’s perfect to suit everyone’s tastes! Make it vegetarian by adding diced peppers and black beans, for example. I happen to love shrimp so these shrimp tostada bites are my favorite variation.
