Turkey Tostada

A tostada contains a blend of flavors and nutrients in the toppings that sit on a thin, crispy bread-like layer. For this tostada, I’ve made some healthy replacements to reduce the fat:
  • Lean turkey instead of beef
  • Whole black or pinto beans instead of refried beans
  • Cabbage instead of iceberg lettuce
  • Greek yogurt instead of sour cream
  • Flatbread instead of fried corn tortilla
There’s still lots of flavor and fiber, and the fat is significantly less.
