Thanks to the great folks at Butterball for making this recipe post possible. As always, my comments, opinions, and love for tostadas are my own.
When thinking about easy, delicious appetizers for a party, picnic, get-together or even a quick dinner, tostadas always come to mind. They are simple (just a quick and easy assembly process really), they are crunchy, and they can be topped with almost anything.
These turkey and mushroom tostadas remind me of warm, happy spring and summer days when my parents (uncles, aunts, and cousins, too) used to take us to the Balneario, our name for the hot springs where I come from. Those days were filled with laughter and play. Since we loved to stay for hours and hours, my family would bring lots of food to keep our energy up, and tostadas were a favorite.
My mom made mushroom and turkey bacon tostadas, so I’ve decided to make my own recipe here, inspired by my mom’s tostadas and adding peppers and turkey sausage for my kids and husband.
The beauty of these tostadas is that you can serve them warm or cold.
Turkey Mushroom Tostadas
Prep time 20 minutes
From start to finish 55 minutes
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 8 slices Butterball® everyday Turkey Bacon Original, chopped
- 1/2 pound bell peppers (approx. 1 1/2 peppers) in the colors of your choice, chopped
- 1-2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
- 3 Roma tomatoes, chopped
- 1 pound mushrooms (white and cremini), chopped
- 1-13 oz package Butterball® everyday Turkey Sausage Hardwood Smoked, sliced
- 1 tablespoon apple vinegar
- 4-5 fresh cilantro sprigs
- Queso fresco (optional)
Heat oil in a deep pot. Add onion and garlic and cook until soft (approximately 3 minutes). Mix in turkey bacon and cook for 5 minutes, stirring now and then.
Add peppers, tomatoes, and mushrooms, mix, and cook for 2 more minutes.
Incorporate turkey sausage, vinegar and cilantro, cover, and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Let it cool down and serve over tostadas.
Top with queso fresco if you choose.
If, for any reason, you don’t have access to fresh tomatoes, you can substitute one can of fire roasted tomatoes. Also, if you have trouble finding tostadas, this turkey mushroom mixture makes a great dip, too!
