No Meat Mondays! Easy Bean Tostadas
Easy Bean Tostadas
12 corn tortillas
2 cans black beans
toppings (lettuce, tomato, bell peppers, sour cream, cheese, salsa, etc)
Place a little canola oil in a pan and fry the corn tortillas for just a few seconds on each side. Just enough until they become stiffened and a little hard.
Place drained and rinsed black beans in a pan and set on low or medium low depending on how quickly you need to heat them up. Add about a tablespoon of taco seasoning to beans (add what you want to get the flavor you'd like. I added enough to make the beans a stronger flavor since I knew I would be topping them with so many veggies, I wanted the flavor to stand out.)
Then just layer and build your tostadas! Corn tortilla, some black beans, and toppings as desired. I liked that this is a play on tacos so you can use the same ingredients, but make the meal seem a little different.
