Baked Layered TostadaSubmitted by: AYOUNGLADY
IntroductionThis is a substantial Mexican meal that tastes wonderful when served with a homemade fresh salsa and corn warmed tortillas. I have attempted to trim fat and calories by substituting ground turkey for the original ground beef.

This was a great recipe. Low calories given the portion size which was more than filling. My family loved it and wants me to make it again and I certainly will. Fantastic, tasty "diet food" that you could serve to company. Does not at all taste like a diet food. Yum! - 7/24/09

Thanks for trying this! I will use Heart Healthy Bisquick myself in the future. One more thing: These are quite large servings, and most of us would easily be satisfied with only one-TENTH of the recipe. We also won't be accused of putting our families on a diet, so it's a win-win menu. : )
So yummy! Using sour cream and cheese with an egg is ingenious and its so creamy delicious. The only problem is the high fat count. - 8/17/09

My old recipe called for high "everything" with grd beef, reg refried beans w/fat. You could try fat-free cheese and reduce portion size. Don't try to use FF sour cream mixed with the egg on the topping, however, because it doesn't hold up in the oven. Glad you enjoyed the recipe!
