Wok's For Dinner: Venison and Bean Tostadas

I loved these tostadas! Hubs, too, said that he enjoyed them, and the kids ate them really well, although I served theirs taco-style since it was easier for them to handle.

Venison and Bean Tostadas

8 flour tortillas
1 lb ground venison (you can substitute ground turkey or ground beef)
1 small onion, chopped
1 pk taco seasoning mix
2/3 cup water
1 can (15oz) chili beans, undrained
toppings of your choice: lettuce, shredded cheese, sour cream, etc.

Cook ground venison with onion in a large skillet, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink; drain any grease. Stir in taco seasoning, water, and chili beans. Simmer on low for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place tortillas on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake about 7 minutes or until crisp. If they puff up during baking, just pok them with a knife or pat them down with a spatula or your hand (make sure the tortillas have cooled down first!). Place baked tortillas on plates, top with lettuce, venison mixture, and your favorite toppings.

If freezing: Allow venison mixture to cool after cooking and simmering with beans and taco seasoning. Place into a gallon-size freezer bag, squeeze out the air, seal & lay flat in the freezer. Thaw 24-36 hours in the refrigerator. Heat in a medium saucepan on the stove, and serve over tortillas.
