 1.   Halve an onion crosswise, and place one half in the bowl of a food processor. Add jalapeño pepper, garlic, 1 cup cilantro, olive oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; puree about 1 minute. Cut remaining onions into 1/4-inch-thick rounds.
 2.   Preheat oven to 400°. In a bowl, coat flank steak, onions, and zucchini with cilantro purée. Cover; marinate at least 30 minutes.
 3.   Place tortillas on baking sheets, two at a time, and place in oven until dry and golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes. If baking two trays at a time, rotate halfway through baking. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
 4.   Preheat a grill, or set a grill pan coated with olive-oil cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Place steak on grill; cook about 10 minutes. Turn and cook until medium rare, about 10 minutes more. Remove from heat; set aside. Place zucchini and onions on grill. Cook until tender and browned, 8 to 12 minutes; turn as needed.
 5.   Thinly slice beef. Toss lettuce with 1/2 cup cilantro. Layer each tortilla with tomatoes, lettuce, zucchini, beef, onions, and radishes. Garnish with remaining 1/2 cup cilantro; squeeze half a lime over each tostada, and sprinkle each with a pinch of salt.

Why is the fiber lower than what the nutritional information says?
Weight Watchers modified the point system plan, where you can only count 4 grams of fiber for any food item, and the rest is ignored.  This modification was because people were abusing it and eating high fiber foods in order to make the points seem lower.
