I could honestly eat tostadas every night for dinner and be a pretty happy lady. A huge part of this has to do the versatility of the crunchy baked tostada shell. Layered with any combination of beans, protein, and veggies you can take the simple tostada in so many different directions. Mexican flavors are the classic version but I also love making Greek tostadas with chickpeas, chicken, cucumbers, tomatoes, black olives, and and feta or Asian tostadas with black beans, pork or steak, a quick Asian slaw, and some drizzled Hoisin sauce.

Today's recipe is inspired by the classic Mexican tostada and made with lean ground turkey, poblano peppers, red onion, pinto beans, and your favorite salsa. It's a quick and easy recipe which makes it perfect for a busy weeknight and you can add any variety of toppings to suit it to your tastes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the tortillas directly on the oven rack and cook for 8-10 minutes until crisp to create the tostada shells.
  2. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onions and peppers and cook for 4-5 minutes. Add the turkey and garlic. Cook for 8-10 minutes until turkey is fully cooked.

  4. Heat the pinto beans in a pan or the microwave. Then use the back of a fork to slightly mash the pinto beans.
