“Well, sorta. Took a recipe and embellished it. The lamb meat can be omitted if you wish. Inspired by a recipe in Betty Crocker's Meatless Main Dishes. If you want to spice it up further, garnish with fresh minced hot peppers! A good way to use up leftover refried beans!”
4 tostadas

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to BROIL.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cumin, oregano, chili powder, garlic powder, allspice and cinnamon with the refried beans.
  3. Divide and spread the bean mixture on pita bread. Add the cooked lamb, if using.
  4. Top with the bell pepper, diced tomato, green onion and cheese (use a combination of mizithra and cheddar if you want).
  5. Broil for approximately 2-3 minutes, watching oven *carefully*.
  6. Remove from oven and top with the lettuce and cilantro. Garnish with the salsa verde, sour cream and minced chili pepper, too!
  7. Note: Yield is for tostadas without the optional meat. Half pound indicated in recipe is pre-cooked.
