Are we still enjoying leftovers? Two days in my house is the golden rule before I begin to tweak the menu. When it’s time to spruce up those leftovers I always go with an easy turkey tostada. Crispy baked tortillas slathered with refried beans and piled high with shredded turkey. A warm drizzle of cranberry sauce, a handful of pepitas for crunch and dinner is served.
I always have a batch of refried beans stashed away in the freezer and my local grocery store helps out by selling pre baked tostada shells. I’m not a black Friday gal, loathe being in crowds, so I stock up on leftover menu staples before Thanksgiving Day. No rushing to the store and honestly after two days of eating Thanksgiving fare the last thing I even want to attempt is to squeeze into my jeans. Enjoy!
Great use of leftovers!

Great idea to keep that stashed in your fridge…have a bit of soup left, but that’s about it for leftovers!
i would really love these–the sweet and tart cranberry sauce and crunchy pepitas make this extra fabulous!
What made turkey and cranberry sauce grilled cheese sandwich today and they were delicious! I think tomorrow, I’ll have to try tostadas. Love them!

I really like those prepackaged tostada shells. Your tostadas look very good Vianney. Love those pumpkin seeds for crunch.
What a great way to use up turkey leftovers!
