black bean tostadas

crispy, baked tortillas, and gooey black beans make for a quick, healthy Mexican meal

  • 2 corn tortillas
  • sprinkle of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • your favorite salsa
  • 1/4 avocado smushed
  • 1/2 cup chopped greens- romaine or kale etc.

1. While your oven is preheating to 350° F, lightly coat both sides of the tortillas with just a sprinkle of olive oil
2. Mush up the black beans with the cumin, and gently warm in a skillet or small pot
3. When the oven is heated, place the tortillas on a baking sheet & bake for 7 minutes
4. Flip tortillas over & bake another 7 minutes, or until they're to your desired crispness
