Seven Layer Tostadas
1 can (16 oz.) refried pinto beans
1 1/2 cups guacamole (purchased or homemade guacamole)
1 tsp. Taco Seasoning Mix
1 cup finely grated low-fat cheese such as Four Cheese Mexican Blend
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 cup sliced black olives (or use a 4 oz. can sliced olives)
4-6 flour tortillas, 6 or 8 inch inch size
olive oil for greasing baking sheet, about 1 tsp.
Cook ground turkey until brown and add ½ tsp of taco seasoning mix.
Put flour tortillas on the baking sheet with a touch of olive oil and toast tortillas in the oven until they’re crisp and barely starting to brown, turning several times. This will take less than 5 minutes so watch them carefully.
While tortillas are crisping, put the refried beans in a bowl, stir to break them apart, and microwave 2-3 minutes, or until they’re hot.
Stir the remaining taco seasoning mix into the sour cream.
Chop the onions, slice green onions, and slice the olives.
Put crisped tortilla shell on a plate and top with:
a thin layer of refried beans (1-2 tablespoons)
a thin layer of guacamole (1-2 tablespoons)
a thin layer of seasoned sour cream (1-2 tablespoons)
several generous pinches of finely grated low-fat cheese
Put back in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted then top with chopped tomatoes, thinly sliced green onions, and sliced olives
Serve right away, with salsa or hot sauce if desired.
