I'm a health fitness specialist and personal trainer, so I know how important it is to make smart food choices to fuel my day. These fast and filling tostadas are packed with lean protein, fiber and a good dose of veggies. Have them any night of the week. —Julie Huntington, Memphis, Tennessee

"We love these. I use pinto beans instead of kidney, don't use the mushrooms (personal preference), and often serve them on tortillas instead of tostada shells because I usually have those on hand."
