Ingredients
  

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • 1 can low-sodium black beans
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 4 eggs

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place tortillas on a baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or until crispy.
  • While tortillas are baking, drain and rinse black beans. Mash black beans with cumin in a bowl until most beans are smashed and mixture is creamy. Slice avocado, dice tomato, chop green onions and finely chop cilantro.
  • Remove tortillas from the oven. Spread 1/4 amount of smashed black beans onto each tortilla. Sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of cheese. Return to oven and bake for 5 more minutes, or until cheese is melted.
  • Heat a large skillet over high heat and spray with cooking oil. Crack eggs into skillet and fry until white is set, but yolk is still creamy.
  • Put one fried egg on top of black beans on each tostada.
  • Top tostadas with fresh tomato, green onion, cilantro and avocado.

Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Avocados are ripe and ready to eat when they yield to light pressure.
  • Unripe, hard avocados can be ripened quickly by placing in a paper bag for a day or two.
  • If low-sodium beans are not available, regular beans may be used. Drain and rinse them well to reduce sodium.
  • Any type of beans can be used such as kidney or pinto.
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Get creative! Top tostadas with any of your favorite vegetables and toppings. Leftover meat or chicken can be added for a hearty meal. Tostadas are also great for a quick snack or lunch.
  • Baking fresh tortillas into crispy tostadas is cheaper and healthier than purchasing tostadas at the store.
