Gluten Free Tostadas

These tostadas are super easy to make if you're pinched for time and perfect for beating that Mexican food craving. Coming from California, I used to always eat Mexican food so it's a common craving of mine. Thanks to this late night grocery shopping idea I now have a clean and gluten free option to turn too!

4 gluten free tostadas (I found mine at a grocery store)
1 lbs of ground extra lean turkey breast 
1 can of low sodium black beans, preferably organic
3 tomatoes diced
1 cup of brown rice 
1/2 onion diced
Italian seasoning 
Tiny tiny tiny bit of sea salt 
Italian 5 cheese shreeded blend 
Shredded cheddar 

1. Preheat oven to 350F
2.Cook brown rice based on package directions 
3. Place diced onion in pan with some EVOO and cook until translucent. 
4. Add turkey breast and cook. Break it into little pieces with the spatula. Add Italian seasoning to taste as well as sea salt to taste. 
5. Drain and rinse black beans and cook according to directions. Once cooked, mash them to make them similar to re-fried beans. 
6. Place tortillas in oven at 350F for about 6-7 mins or until they're golden. 
7. Once everything is cooked and diced add all to tostadas. I did beans on bottom, followed by rice, followed by turkey, followed by tomatoes and then topped with cheese as desired! 

Delicious and actually very simple to make. Next time I'll add some shredded lettuce and some homemade guacamole if I have it!
