Real Men Cook: Simple Turkey Tostadas

30 Minute Meals

Rain Rain go away, come again another day. I’m sure I will not be saying this come summer time, in fact I will probably be begging for it to come so my plants don’t die. But for the time being, “go away!”

I guess the good thing about being trapped inside is my mind wanders to food. Well, maybe that’s not a good thing, especially when it’s girl scout cookie season. True Confession: I ate a full box of Chocolate Mint cookies in 3 days, by myself. Another true confession: That’s a long time for me, normally I can finish it in a day.

Ok, back to the point. I spent the day dreaming up the next recipe and thinking of what I could make with the remaining lonely ingredients in my frig. In todays case though, as it is Helping Hubbie Day, my thought was also, “What can I have Mike make for me this week?”

I landed on these Simple Turkey Tostadas. They are super easy, in fact the only thing that needs to be “made” is the turkey mixture, everything else just needs to be chopped. Happy Cooking… men! 🙂

To get started, Heat medium sized skillet over medium high heat. Add coconut oil and turkey.
