Loaded Turkey Tostadas

Loaded Turkey Tostadas

I promise you will be so obsessed with these turkey tostadas!! They are so good they almost remind me of Taco Bell – with a healthified twist of course 😉 They’re packed with protein and full of flavor – perfect for your Taco Tuesday, lunch or dinner!! 


1 package ground turkey 

1 package of taco seasoning (appx. 3 tablespoons) 

4 tortillas 

1/2 cup black beans, rinsed and drained

1/3 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese (if you don’t have that a mixture of Monterey Jack & Cheddar work perfect!)

1/4 cup green chiles, diced

2 cup iceburg lettuce, finely chopped 

1/2 avocado

1/2 cup, chipotle sauce 

1/4 cup red onion, finely sliced

The recipe:

First, heat your skillet up and drizzle a little bit of olive oil to cook your ground turkey. 

Season with your package of taco seasoning! My best recommendation for this is to follow according to package!! 

Sauté for about 7-10 minutes or until the turkey is cooked through.

While your turkey cooks, prep your veggies by thinly slicing your lettuce and red onion, and dicing your green chiles.

Remove your turkey from heat & set aside. 

Then in another pan with avocado oil, fry your tortillas to get them nice and crispy. 

Fry for a minute on each side, then pat the excess oil with a paper towel. 

Optional: heat your beans on the stovetop for about 1-2 minutes before adding to the tostada. 

Add your rinsed and strained black beans to your tortillas and smush directly onto the tortilla using a fork. 

Layer on your cooked ground Turkey and top with shredded cheese. 

Melt your cheese to get the gooey goodness in the microwave, oven, or even air fryer.  

Top with chopped green chiles, lettuce, & avocado. 

Once that’s done, you’re ready to finish with a drizzle of chipotle sauce & your sliced red onions. Enjoy!! xx
