    It’s no secret that I love Mexican food. And when I’m in need of some the best Mexican food, I head over to Frontera Cocina by Rick Bayless at Disney Springs. And I visit as often as I can!

    We caught up with Chef Rick at the restaurant, that recently debuted its Taste of Baja menu, which features five new items including Spicy Ahi Tuna Tostadas.

    The eight-time winner of the James Beard Foundation Award made the Tostadas for #DisneyFamilia in this fun video exclusive for us.

    Here is the video and recipe!


    Recipe: Spicy Ahi Tuna Tostadas
    Makes 6 tostadas

    • ¼ cup good-quality mayonnaise
    • 1 canned chipotle chile in adobo
    • 1/3 cup olive oil
    • ½ teaspoon (or more) pure powdered chipotle chile
    • 2 to 3 tablespoons finely grated ginger
    • Salt
    • ¾ pound sashimi-quality ahi (yellowfin) tuna fillet
    • ½ medium seedless cucumber
    • ½ large Honeycrisp apple, cored
    • The juice of a large lime
    • 6 tostadas (crisp-fried corn tortillas)
    • Flaked sea salt for garnish
    • Cilantro leaves for garnish

    In a blender or food processor, combine the mayonnaise and single canned chile. Pulse to combine, then process until thoroughly blended.

    In a medium bowl, combine the olive oil, powdered chipotle and ginger.

    With a sharp knife, cut the tuna into small dice—I like ¼-inch cubes—and scoop into a bowl. Finely dice the cucumber and the apple to the same size as tuna. Combine with the olive oil mixture and season with salt, usually about a generous ½ teaspoon. Refrigerate for about ½ hour for the flavors to mingle.

    Just before serving, stir the lime juice into the tuna mixture and taste. Adjust with more lime and salt if you think necessary. Smear a portion of the mayonnaise on each tostada, pile on a portion of the tuna mixture, sprinkle with flaked salt and decorate with cilantro leaves.
