Black Bean Tostadas that are ready in 10 minutes
Have you ever made a tostada before? They are really delicious and feature a grilled tortilla ( I used flour) that is heated until crisp on both sides. Then, they are topped with fresh veggies, and sometimes proteins. I made mine vegetarian for the kids and added fresh salsa, Black Bean Fiesta, and feta cheese.
2 Easy Ways to Heat a Flour Tostada
For this recipe, I used a small skillet, over medium heat. I then added my flour tortilla to it (no oil) and heated for 1 minute per side. You will know they need to be flipped by the bubbles in the crust.
You can also toast them on a baking sheet in the oven (400 degrees f. ) for 3 minutes, flip, and then another 3 minutes on the opposite site.
