Like flying saucers, just pick them up and eat! Another of Michael's Mexican dishes. As with the burritos, Michael puts meat on his, I prefer no meat.

A quick lunch can't get any easier! I used prebaked low fat tostadas shells instead of frying and added chopped tomatoes & green onions atop the lettuce. The olives were a nice addition. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

I loved these! I really like tostadas, but never made them myself. I loved the olive combo here - different but delicious. I made these for lunch with some leftover recipe#50820 I made earlier in the week and topped with a little sour cream. A good way to use up tortillas. This would be a perfect lunch or snack anytime. Can't wait to have again - Thanks Sweetiebarbara!
