Try two or three turkey tinga tostadas and taste terrific-ness. (Did we have to work for that one? Yes. Is it worth it? Oh yes.) Full of flavor, easy on effort, and chockful o' crunch, these tinga tostadas tantalize, said simply. Why are you groaning and walking away?

  1. 1

    Toast the Tostadas

    Tostadas are a delicious, but messy treat. For this recipe, they can easily be converted to tacos. Simply warm tortillas in oven for 1-2 minutes after completing steps.

    Poke tortillas with a fork all over, 10 times on each side of tortilla.

    Place tortillas on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tsp. olive oil and massage oil into tortillas.

    Bake in hot oven until browned and crispy, 4-6 minutes.

    While tortillas toast, prepare toppings.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Toppings

    Hold romaine heart at root end and chop coarsely into 1/2" strips.

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1/2" dice.

  3. 3

    Cook the Turkey

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add ground turkey to hot pan. Break up meat until beginning to brown, 2-3 minutes.

    Add red bell pepper, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp. pepper, seasoning blend, and tomatoes. Stir occasionally until pepper is tender, no pink remains on ground turkey, and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  4. 4

    Assemble the Tostadas

    Combine crema and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl.

    Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Top tostadas evenly with crema (to taste), then turkey mixture, and cheese.

  5. 5

    Bake Tostadas and Finish Dish

    Bake tostadas in hot oven until cheese has melted, 4-5 minutes.

    Remove from oven.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping tostadas with romaine. Bon appétit!
