These tostadas are a great alternative to ground beef tacos. They have a delicious Tex-Mex flavor and are nutritious. I prefer to leave out the mushrooms. Hope you enjoy them!

We loved these following Juenessa's great suggestions! Omitted mushrooms, used refried beans instead of kidney, assembled the tostadas and added the cheese to the top and melted in the oven, then added the toppings. The turkey mixture is delicious, I added a little fresh lime juice to the mix. A+ dinner, everyone ate till they were stuffed. A casual, fun meal!
My partner loves tostadas and she loved these. I made homemade tostadas and this was a simple and filling topping.
We loved these tostadas! Just a couple of changes to suit our tastes. I omited the mushrooms, because we don't care for them. I used refried beans instead of kidney beans and smeared each tostada with refried beans and then put the turkey mixture on top. I put the cheese on top of the turkey and then put them in the oven for about 5-10 minutes, until the cheese melted. Then took them out of the oven and added the lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and cilantro. My boys ate this recipe like they hadn't eaten in days. :-) Thanks so much for a wonderful Saturday night dinner, Karamia!
