Crispy Turkey Tostadas

November/December 2008

Your rating: None Average: 4.6 (50 votes)

Shredded leftover turkey tops homemade tostadas in this Tex-Mex favorite. Making your own tostada shells from fresh corn tortillas is easier than you might think—crisp them up in the oven while you prepare the toppings. Choose either regular petite diced tomatoes or those with added jalapeños, depending on your inclination for spicy food. Serve with black beans, rice and extra salsa or hot sauce on the side.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Really great and really easy! My only complaint is that they were a little hard to eat--once you bit the tostada shell, it was difficult to keep it together. However, that is just the nature of tostadas! "

Wow. These were AWESOME!!! We loved this recipe :) I didn't have either kind of cooking spray, so I used "I can't believe it's not butter" spray, and it worked fine. The tortillas were crispy, and the tostadas were extremely yummy. I think I made them big, though. We only got 6 servings out of it instead of 8.

This is such a good recipe. Between this one and the lean and spicy taco meat with homemade shells, I won't ever be able to buy shells again. I like to make my own fresh salsa to put in this instead of the canned.

This is one of the best things I have ever made off this site - and I make a lot of things... We used our leftover turkey from Thanksgiving for this recipe but it is now a staple using poached chicken breast.

I just made this and it was delicious. The tosadas baked nice and crisp and the color was a golden brown. So crunchy...my husband liked it also. The canned tomato and turkey were a tasty blend. I will make this again.
