Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


In a medium saucepan combine tomatoes, onion, jalapenos and honey. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer over medium 20 minutes. Stir in shredded turkey and heat through.
In a bowl combine avocado, salsa, sour cream and cilantro. Mix with a fork until well combined.
To serve place 2 tostadas on each plate. Spread avocado sauce over tostadas. Spoon on turkey mixture. Top with shredded lettuce and 1 tablespoon of cheese.
