Black Bean Tostadas

If you are one of those people who looks at a recipe and says there are way too many ingredients and you pass it up. Stop here. This is relatively quick, very tasty and a refreshing Mexican meal. If you choose to make the cilantro-lime rice, it takes a little more preparation. Just cut up all the garlic and cilantro together to save on chopping time.

Black Bean Tostadas
  • Tortillas
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1/2 c. onion, diced
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/3 c. Tomato Sauce
  • 1/2 c. cilantro, chopped
  • 1 tsp lime juice, or juice of 1/2 lime
  • White corn
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • 1 large tomato, cut
  • Cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Sour cream
  • Salsa
  • Cilantro Lime Rice (optional)
Cooking Directions
Spray both sides of tortillas with nonstick spray and bake at 350 until crisp, turn over once.

Meanwhile, saute onion, garlic, and cumin in olive oil in sauce pan. Add black beans, tomato sauce, cilantro and lime juice. Stir and cook until heated through.

Layer ingredients on tortilla and enjoy!
