    Ingredients

    • 1 egg, I like Eggland’s Best eggs
    • 1 cup onions, finely chopped
    • ¼ cup cornmeal
    • 1 (1 oz) package Lawry’s taco seasoning
    • 2 tablespoons salsa
    • 1 pound extra lean ground beef or turkey
    • Ingredients for Tostadas
    • 48 Tostitos Baked Scoops, see shopping tip
    • 3 cups romaine lettuce, shredded or chopped fine
    • ½ cup Nancy’s Skinny Ranch Dressing or fat-free sour cream
    • ½ cup salsa, I like Pace Medium Chunky Salsa or your favorite

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Coat a baking pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
    2. In a large bowl, mix together egg, onions, cornmeal, taco seasonings and salsa. Add beef or turkey and blend well.
    3. Using a measuring tablespoon, scoop 1 level tablespoon for each meatball and roll into a ball. Repeat to make 48 meatballs. Place meatballs on a baking pan. Bake, uncovered, for about 12 minutes, until cooked completely. These can be prepped in advance and reheated before serving. They also freeze well.
    4. To assemble each mini tostada: Place 1 tablespoon lettuce in each baked scoop. Drizzle with ½ teaspoon ranch or sour cream. Add 1 meatball. Drizzle ½ teaspoon salsa on top of each. Repeat to make 48 meatballs.

      I made these with ground turkey, and took them to a potluck. They were a big hit! Quick and easy, too!
