Turkey Tostadas


  • 6 (6-inch) flour tortillas
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried whole oregano
  • Dash of hot sauce
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1 1/2 ounces) shredded part-skim Mozzarella cheese
  • Sliced jalapeno pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 pound ground turkey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried whole thyme
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt


  1. Place tortillas on a baking sheet; bake at 350 degrees F for 7 to 10 minutes or until crisp. Set aside.
  2. Combine ground turkey, onion, garlic, and jalapeno pepper in a large skillet coated with cooking spray. Cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, stirring to crumble meat.
  3. Add tomato sauce, oregano, thyme and hot sauce; stir well. Simmer for 10 minutes or until thickened.
  4. Spread about 1/3 cups turkey and tomato sauce mixture over each reserved tortilla; sprinkle each with 1 tablespoon Mozzarella cheese.
  5. Broil 8 inches from heat until cheese melts.
  6. Top each tostada with 1 tablespoon low-fat yogurt.
  7. Garnish with jalapeno pepper slices, if desired.
