I got this recipe from my mother. In summer, we both prepare this dish often with vegetables from our gardens. Ranch dressing is a tasty topping twist.—JoNee Koehn, Buhl, Idaho

Directions

  1. In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the onion, zucchini, mushrooms, celery, green pepper and salt. Simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Meanwhile, in another skillet, fry tortillas in oil; drain on paper towels. Place the tortillas on a greased baking sheet. Spoon meat mixture onto the center of each. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350° for 30-5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Top with tomato, sour cream and hot pepper sauce. Yield: 4 tostadas.
Helpful Hint: Unless the label states otherwise, store hot pepper sauce at room temperature for up to 1 year. Although the color may change over time, it'll still pack a punch.
