Well, sorta. Took a recipe and embellished it. The lamb meat can be omitted if you wish. Inspired by a recipe in Betty Crocker's Meatless Main Dishes. If you want to spice it up further, garnish with fresh minced hot peppers! A good way to use up leftover refried beans!

Fun tostada. This was overloaded with goodies. I used some shredded leftover lamb shank, Greek pita bread, mizithra cheese (with a little cheddar) and Greek yogurt. It was hard to eat because it kept falling apart, but that may be because I loaded it up. lol. Thanks for sharing Cookgirl. Made for ZWT9.
