Tostadas

Hamburger gets a bad rap for having a lot of calories. But consider this: If one 4oz. patty of extra lean hamburger has 140 calories*, then 1oz. Hamburger, crumbled, fried and drained of fat can can only have 35 calories, and probably has less.

Crumble and fry 1 pound hamburger. Drain all liquids twice.

Wipe pan clean of fat and return meat.

Add:
1/4C Taco seasoning**
2/3C water and simmer

Heat one can fat free refried beans** slowly.

Chop a nice pile of lettuce and a medium sized tomato.

Shred 4 oz. cheddar cheese.

Blend 1/2C sour cream till slightly liquid.

With the oven on 300, heat 8 tostada shells** for about 5 minutes.

Constructing your Tostada Masterpiece:

1 T Sour Cream
1/2 oz. Cheese
Lettuce & Tomatoes
2 T Taco Meat
1/4 C Refried Beans
