Tostada Bowls

Follow Me on Pinterest

We love Mexican food in our house, so it should come as no surprise that I make all sorts of tacos, quesadillas and burritos whenever I can.  However, it’s also nice to mix it up and come up with new ways to use some of the same ingredients, which is where these Tostada Bowls come in.  They feature all the great things you’d find in your favorite burrito, quesadilla or taco salad but are a bit healthier because I used ground turkey and baked the flour tortillas to form the bowls.  It tastes like you’re indulging, while still being kind to your waistline.  Quick, mostly healthy and a new spin on traditional favorites?  Count me in!

Turn a muffin tin over, spray it with non-stick cooking spray and tuck some flour tortillas in there to make tostada bowls!
