Super-Easy Black Bean and Fresh Veggie Tostadas


Since tostadas are so simple, you hardly need a recipe. But I wanted to show just how super quick and easy it is to make a weeknight meal. This dish comes together in less time that it would take to drive down to the local fast food place to pick up take-out. It probably works out to be cheaper too!

Makes: 4 tostadas, 2 generous or 4 moderate servings

Warm up your tortillas by placing them in a 250º F. oven for about 5 minutes. Set aside.

In a large skillet or pan over medium heat, cook the tomatoes, beans, onions, garlic pepper, chili powder and red pepper flakes. Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, until the onion is tender and translucent. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.

Lay the tortillas on 4 plates. Divide the bean mixture up and spread on top of the tortillas.

Divide the lettuce, tomato and avocado among the four tortillas and top with hot sauce, if you’re feeling saucy. Enjoy!
