Baked Layered Tostada

Submitted by: AYOUNGLADY

Introduction

This 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.

Ingredients

    Middle Layer:
    1 lb (16 oz) ground turkey, 93% lean
    1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
    1 envelope (1-1/4 oz) taco seasoning mix
    1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
    1 can (16 oz) fat-free refried beans
    1 can (4 oz) chopped green chiles
    1/2 cup sliced ripe olives

    Bottom Layer:
    1 cup Bisquick original baking mix
    1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
    1/4 cup 1% milk
    1 fresh egg
    2 tbsp Canola oil

    Top Layer:
    1 fresh egg
    1 cup reduced fat sour cream
    2 cups Kraft 2% cheddar cheese

Directions

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Grease 9-inch square baking dish (or rectangular that is about 12 x 7-1/2 x 2 inches). Spray with cooking spray like PAM.

Cook and stir ground turkey and onion until brown; drain.
Stir in seasoning mix, tomato sauce, beans, chiles and ripe olives. Set aside.

Mix baking mix (Bisquick), cornmeal, milk, beaten egg and oil until moistened; beat hard for about 30 seconds. Spread on the bottom of the dish.

Spread the turkey/bean mixture next over the above layer.

For the top layer, mix the egg, sour cream and cheddar cheese well, then spread on top.

Bake uncovered in preheated oven for 30 minutes until lightly browned like meringue. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

  • Incredible!

    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

    I'm so pleased that it was a hit with you and your family. Hey, it's almost painless, this kind of "dieting," isn't it? LOL

    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. : )

  • I was at a loss of what to make for dinner tonight... then I found this recipe. This was so gooood!!! The top layer balanced out the other layers. And I'm thinking the middle and top layers would make a great dip. =) - 8/17/09

  • 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!

  • This was delicious and very filling! I also froze some of the extra portions (wrapped up in foil and put in a freezer safe ziploc bag). I thawed them out a little, reheated in the oven, and it was just as good as before! - 8/6/09
