      Full marks even though I used ground beef style veggie crumbles to make these vegetarian, which I'm trying to do more often these days. I've always loved Mexican foods and this is a great way to get that TexMex flavor without the all of that attending fat. How can you bet a top notch yum factor that is still healthy eating!

      This was really yummy! I used a corn tortilla & baked it for 400 for 10 minutes till it was nice & crispy. I only made one tostada (for me!) & used 2 tbsp salsa in the meat and 1 tbsp for the beans. I didn't use any tomato or green pepper-didn't have any! I added a little reduced fat mexican cheese & a little more of the seasonings-personal taste! Thank u for sharing this; will make again!
