Shrimp Tostados

I needed to put a dent in a bunch of white corn tortillas I purchased for last week's carnitas, so Andy and I decided to give grilling them a try. My hope was that I could get awesome taco shells without frying them in oil. Unfortunately bending the shells on the grill was a miserable failure and we just left them flat and made tostado shells instead.

I also had half a can of black beans left over and huge cucumber to get through, so I chopped up the cucumber along with some tomatoes, red onion, and added the beans, salt, pepper, cuming and a touch of jalapeno sauce to make this relish/salad.

We whipped up a spicy BBQ sauce and brushed it one some skewered shrimp and grilled them up.

The final product was impossible to eat with a knife and fork, but a fun, albeit messy hand-held dinner, and while the healthier slant was good and good for us, these grilled shells were no where near as good as the traditional fried version.
