A note about serious food allergies

Add a new preparation to your tortilla rotation: toasting the tortilla until it's perfectly crispy. (Tostada, as you may have guessed, means “toasted” in Spanish.) Then pile on the flavorful fixings: chayote, seasoned turkey, pickled shallot, avocado, sour cream, and cheese. (And don’t forget the lime zest to give it that breezy citrus hint.) There's no dainty way of eating the resulting deliciousness, but you won't care: Toasty, crumbly tostadas will become your tortilla go-to.

    Toast the Tortillas

    Poke tortillas with a fork all over, 10 times for each tortilla. Place tortillas on prepared baking sheet and lightly coat both sides with cooking spray. Toast in hot oven until crisp and golden brown, 7-10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside. While tortillas toast, cook chayote.

    Cook the Chayote

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chayote to hot pan. Stir occasionally until lightly browned and tender, 5-8 minutes. Season with half the cilantro, 1 tsp. lime zest (reserve remaining of both for garnish), ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Remove to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Turkey

Plate dish as pictured on front of card, placing avocado on tortilla and topping with turkey. Add chayote, pickled shallot (to taste), cheese, remaining cilantro, and a dollop of sour cream. Top with remaining lime zest (to taste). Bon appétit!
