COMBINE cream cheese, mayonnaise and milk in a small bowl; whisk until smooth. Stir in cilantro and 1 tablespoon of lime juice. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
THREAD 5 shrimp onto each of 6 (12-inch) skewers when ready to serve. In small bowl, combine barbecue rub and salt. Brush shrimp with remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice and dredge in rub mixture. Place kabobs in shallow dish; cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
PREHEAT grill or broiler. Place kabobs on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; grill or broil for 2 minutes on each side, or until done. Set aside.
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Place tortillas directly on middle rack and bake for 4 minutes. Top each tortilla with some of cheese and bake until cheese is melted, about 3 minutes longer.
PLACE 1 tortilla on each of 6 individual serving plates. Top each with 5 grilled shrimp and 2 tablespoons cilantro mayonnaise. Sprinkle with tomato and serve.
I made this twice, once as appetizer– delicious and once as hors d'oeuvre. You take scissors and cut the tostadas in quarters, put one shrimp on and cilantro mayo . Let crema/mayo mixture sit overnight and add fresh chives to develop flavors. Everyone enjoyed it.
