"I am anything but a vegetarian but I love this recipe! It uses Mexican flavoured vegetarian meatless hamburger (I like Yves Mexi grounf round) It is fun to put everything on the table and let everyone build their own tostados. You can use those stand alone taco shells if you wish. I like to heat my shells but watch they burn very easily. One of these is enough if you are not a big eater but I like to allow two per person. Sour cream is lovely on top with the avacado or I use 2% cottage cheese whipped. N.B. Because the vegetarian Mexi hamburger is not included in the nutritional inventory the nutritional analysis really wrong"
