Turkey & Black Bean Tostadas.

I loosely followed Rachel Ray's recipe for turkey & black bean tostadas and they turned out pretty well. I used leftover frozen turkey and chopped it up pretty well. I used the juice of an entire lime and used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. I also added lots more hot sauce than called for and some additional spices (oregano, chili powder, cilantro & cumin). Fresh herbs would have really been delicious in this dish.

We're generally pretty hit or miss with Rachel Ray recipes, but this was pretty straight forward. The meal came together quickly and would make a great weeknight meal. Leftover roasted chicken would be good in place of the turkey and you could also use a different variety of beans. I rounded out the meal with Mexican style rice, which would also be good placed on the tostado.

I love that you use turkey. It's really not used nearly enough, although there is a place by me that makes the most fabulous turkey tacos.
