Beany Cheese-tada

Serves: 2

Tex-Mex is at its finest (and easiest!) with this tasty tostada recipe. For a fun twist, cut the tortillas into triangles before toasting to make tortilla chips, and serve the cheese-tada toppings as a cold dip.


  1. 2 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  2. 1/2 cup pinto beans, drained, mashed
  3. 1/4 cup Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  4. 1/2 cup chopped romaine lettuce
  5. 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced
  6. 2 tablespoons salsa


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Toast tortillas 3-4 minutes or to desired crispiness.
  3. Microwave beans on HIGH 1 minute.
  4. Spread beans on tortillas. Top with cheese, Romaine, tomatoes and salsa.

Suggested Sides

1/2 cup pineapple and strawberries topped with ¼ cup granola
A glass of 100% juice
