"Very tasty, lots of good flavors. I omitted the mushrooms, used 1 lb. turkey & used canned corn. First time making tostadas & will be making again!"

MY REVIEW

"Great....made some changes. I omitted the mushrooms, and I used refried beans instead of the kidney beans. I spread the refried beans on each tostada and then put the turkey mixture on top and sprinkled with the cheese. Put them in the oven for 5 minutes, until the cheese melted and topped them with lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and cilantro. These were delicious and everyone ate until they were very full. What a fun dinner! Thanks!"
