1 pound ground turkey or lean ground beef
2 cups refrigerated fresh salsa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 tostada shells
1 large avocado, peeled, chopped
1 1/2 cups shredded lettuce
1/2 cup sour cream
Chopped fresh cilantro, if desired
Heat oven to 350°F.
Cook ground turkey in 10-inch skillet over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until no longer pink. Add 1 cup salsa, salt and pepper; mix well. Continue cooking 1-2 minutes or until heated through.
Place tostada shells onto large ungreased baking sheet. Top each with 1 slice cheese. Bake 1-2 minutes or until cheese just begins to melt. Place baked shells onto large serving plate.
Top each with 1/2 cup turkey mixture. Evenly divide avocado, lettuce and sour cream among tostadas.
Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired. Serve with remaining salsa.
- Cut avocado right before serving as it will brown quickly.
- Tostadas are crisply cooked corn tortillas. They can be fround in the Mexican section of the supermarket.
