- 1 cup frozen whole-kernel corn (thawed, drained)
- 1-2 medium fresh jalapeño peppers (seeds and ribs discarded, finely chopped)
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

- 1 In a small bowl, stir together all the salsa ingredients. Set aside.
- 2 Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Lightly spray the foil with cooking spray.
- 3 Place the tortillas on the baking sheet. Lightly spray the tortillas with cooking spray. Using a fork, pierce the tortillas a few times to prevent them from filling with air. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
- 4 Meanwhile, in a medium nonstick saucepan, cook the turkey over medium-high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until no longer pink, stirring occasionally to turn and break up the turkey. Transfer the turkey to a plate.
- 5 In a large nonstick saucepan, cook the beans and water over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, or until heated through. Using a potato masher, coarsely mash the beans until they’re the consistency of refried beans. Remove from the heat. Stir in the ground turkey.
- 6 To assemble the tostadas, spread the bean and turkey mixture over each tortilla. Spoon the salsa over all.
