Do you have a taste for a delicious, melt-in-your-mouth Bean Tostada? You have to try these! A crunchy flour tortilla full of love. Mmmmm.
I’ve been in one of “those” moods lately ….. ya know the kind where you eat Mexican food for every meal for days on end?! We have eaten a lot of it recently. No one at my house is complaining either. We love it! 🙂
This dish is nice for those times when you want a quick, easy, tasty and budget-friendly dish. Seriously, what more could you ask for?! Start to finish is probably 15 minutes – 20 minutes max! And – you can customize each bean tostada for every family member! Someone doesn’t like tomatoes? Leave them off. Ya like extra cheese? Add a handful! I’m telling ya, it’s a win-win-win situation!
If you want to make it even easier on yourself, buy the already made tostada shells! (My local store sells them on the ethnic foods aisle and in the bread department next to the tortillas).
