Fresh Veggie & Turkey Tostadas
1.25 lb. fresh ground turkey
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 white onion, chopped
1/3 cup taco seasoning
2/3 cup water
2 cups fresh baby greens
1/2 cup non-fat, plain Greek yogurt
1 avocado, sliced
10-12 flat corn tortilla shells
1 small can sliced black olives
1 large tomato, chopped
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
1 cup green salsa (salsa verde)
14.5 oz. can black or pinto beans
1 cup shredded cheese of choice (I used feta and/or colby-jack)
1. Saute chopped bell pepper and onion in small saucepan, set aside.
2. Brown ground turkey in medium saucepan, draining any fat. Add sauteed bell pepper and onion, taco seasoning, and water. Bring to quick boil, lower heat to simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Heat corn tortillas on your grill, or on the stove in a small saucepan, just until very lightly browned.
4. Lay corn tortilla on a dinner plate, layer with any/all of the ingredients from above and devour, several if you like!
These tostadas are like mini taco salads on top of a tortilla, inspired by the Costa Vida-style salads.
