Homemade Baked Tostadas Trim Healthy Mama E

This is such a quick recipe (broken record I know) and absolutely delicious. You bake your corn tortillas in the oven. While they are baking you make your toppings. To keep this an E (E is the low fat but proper carbs) we can’t really add any cheese, sour cream, fatty meat or avocados. What I did for the one above is I used laughing cow cheese spread on top of my refried beans. Top with lettuce, cilantro, salsa, tomatoes. green onions, etc. You could definitely add some low fat ground meat or some cooked chicken breast.

 

I made this again this week. My hubby broke down (we just got his truck out of the shop the day before) and I hadn’t had a chance to do my meal prep. I got home well after 6 and needed to get something together quick. This was a crossover but still on plan. I took a little ground beef, a can of refried beans, salsa and taco type seasonings and mixed all of that together. This was such a great meal and fast. Not one complaint from anyone.

Homemade Baked Tostadas Trim Healthy Mama E

Ingredients

  • Corn tortillas the number is determined by your family size
  • Non stick Spray
  • Laughing Cow Cheese
  • Fat free Refried Beans
  • Taco Seasonings
  • Salsa
  • Toppings

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On a large cookie sheet or two of them. Place as many corn tortillas as your family will need. Lightly spray the tortillas with the spray. Sprinkle salt on the tortillas and any other seasonings you want. I always use chili powder and sometimes add other seasonings.
  • Bake for 6 minutes or until the tortilla is starting to lightly brown. Take out of the oven and flip. Bake for another 6 minutes or until that side starts to lightly brown. Take out of the oven and let cool. They won’t be crisp straight out of the oven but will crisp up as they cool.
  • Mix your refried beans in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup of salsa and whatever taco style seasonings you like.
  • Cut up your toppings.
  • Assemble your tostadas. Spread your bean mixture on top and then your laughing cow cheese on top. Add whatever other toppings you want.
