How to Make It

Cook the sausage in a 10-inch skillet until it's well browned, stirring often to break up the meat. Pour off any fat. Stir the canned tomatoes, picante sauce and cumin in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 10 minutes or until the sausage is cooked through. Place the tortillas on a 14-inch pizza pan or large baking sheet, overlapping to form a 14-inch round. Spread the sausage mixture over the tortillas to within 1/2-inch of the edge. Bake at 350°F. for 25 minutes. Top the sausage mixture with the cheese. Bake for 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Top with the lettuce, chopped tomato and sliced black olives, if desired. Cut the tostada into 8 wedges. Serve with additional picante sauce, if desired.

    Really good!! The corn tortillas were a little tough but it was yummy. I added fresh cilantro with the cheese also.

    My husband and I eat this on a regular basis now. He loves it! We use taco sauce (not chunky) instead of salsa because my husband refuses to eat anything with onions. The black olives are a must. We also use wheat 12 in. tortillas, you can use less of them to cover the pan so it gets nice and crispy on the bottom.

    This was like a Mexican pizza. In addition to the lettuce and tomato, I topped with sour cream, green onion and avocado. Yum!

    Sausage Tostada Grande

    Great inexpensive meal! Loved using sausage as an alternative to meat. I used the Jimmy Dean pork sausage and had a lot of meat mixture so make sure you have big tortillas. I also used the taco seasoning packet but only use a tablespoon or it will be too flavorful (unless you like alot of flavor) Next time I will add a little garlic and onion to give it more kick
