This was a hit with my family! They were absolutely delicious! I didn’t have the salsa, I scrambled to find an online recipe with the ingredients I had on hand and came across this delicious homemade salsa recipe called: HOMEMADE SALSA (RESTAURANT STYLE) on- Spendeithpennies.com

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.

Fantastic! Awesome flavor and quick to make. I left the corn out due to family preferences but otherwise made as-is.

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!
