Cheesy Turkey Tostadas

I love having Taco night in our house.  I love it.  Since sports have started we’ve had to either eat really early or eat really late dinners depending on the night.  Usually we have Taco Thursday night.  However, I decided to try these home made tostada shells.

Tonight was baseball night at 6pm so that meant we eat afterwards.  I cooked the ground turkey and sat it aside while at the game so that was at least done.  Sometimes Craig meets us at the game, but tonight he didn’t.  I walked in the door to see him eating tacos.  He was a bit surprised when I told him that we hadn’t eaten yet.  He said he thought it was taco night.  Well he missed out on some pretty good tostada shells.

What you need:

6 flour tortillas (6 inch)

2 tsp. chili powder, divided

1 lb. lean ground turkey

1 can (15 oz.) no-salt-added black beans, drained, rinsed (I had to skip this)

1/2 cup Salsa

3/4 cup KRAFT shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 cup shredded romaine lettuce

1 large tomato, chopped

1/4 cup BREAKSTONE’S Reduced Fat or KNUDSEN Light Sour Cream (whatever brand you typically use – I use fat free)
Make it:

1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Place tortillas in single layer on baking sheet. Spray 1 side of tortillas with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with 1 tsp. chili powder. Bake 7 to 8 min. or until crisp.

2. Meanwhile, cook meat and remaining 1 tsp. chili powder in large skillet on medium-high heat 3 min. or until meat is no longer pink, stirring frequently. Add beans (didn’t have beans on hand – sure wish I did) and salsa; cook 4 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Stir in half of the cheese.

3. Spread meat mixture evenly on tortillas; top with remaining cheese, lettuce, tomatoes (I dislike those red things and skip them) and sour cream.

Got a thumbs up from Miss Brooklyn!

Mr. Caleb enjoyed his as well!

As I said, we have Taco’s at least once a week.  This was a fun, new way to enjoy one of our favorite meals.  Loved the flavor the chili powder added to the tostada shells.  I could have eaten more than I did but used that will power within!  Plus I wanted to have one for lunch tomorrow!

You could make some home made tortilla chips with the chili powder and cooking spray on the tortilla shells too.  That would be good dipped in your favorite salsa.

Good dinner tonight!

Ended it with a beautiful picture in the sky!
