Tostadas

I have never had a Tostada...before we left AZ I picked up a package of them.
We found out they were a good substitute for Nacho Chips....
we broke some up and covered them with cheese and salsa...

They make a great meal...different from the taco's we have always used!

Tostadas with Beans and Salmon
  • 6 tostadas
  •  1 (7-ounce) salmon, drained
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 tablespoon(s) minced pickled jalapeños, divided
  • 2 tablespoon(s) pickling juice from the pickled jalapeños jar
  • 2 cup(s) coleslaw mix 
  • 2 tablespoon(s) chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 cups black cooked beans
  • 3 tablespoon(s) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoon(s) prepared salsa
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • Lime wedges 
  1. Combine salmon, avocado, and jalapeños in a bowl. Combine cabbage, cilantro, and the pickling juice in another bowl. Mix black beans, sour cream, salsa, and scallions in a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on High until hot, about 2 minutes.
  2. To assemble tostadas, spread each tortilla with some bean mixture and some salmon mixture and top with the cabbage salad. Serve with lime wedges.
    One question.... 
    how do you eat these...
    without making a big mess?:)
