My youngest has a new friend spending the night and asked for tostados for dinner, a perfect request since we had a perfect ripe avocado. I pulled some ground turkey from the freezer and cooked it up with some taco seasonings. A while back I bought a container of taco seasoning but I actually prefer this recipe with onions and tomato sauce and cumin. But sometimes you’re in a hurry and the mixes aren’t all that bad. You could also make up your own taco seasoning packets if you’d like.
While the meat was cooking, I served up small dishes of grated cheese, sour cream, lettuce, sliced olives, diced avocados, diced tomatoes and got out some bottled green salsa and hot sauce. I also heated up a can of refried beans.
When the meat was done, I removed it to a serving dish and covered it to keep warm, rinsed out the cast iron skillet I was using, then put in a small amount of canola oil and fried up some corn tortillas for the base of the tostadas.
Leftovers will make a great taco salad or soft tacos.
