Black Bean Tostadas


Twelve 6-inch corn tortillas
Olive oil for sautéing
1 small red onion. diced
2 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup salsa, plus additional for serving
1/4 cup crumbled cojita cheese (optional– omit for vegan tostadas)

Preheat the oven to 400 F.

In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil over medium high.

Add onion and sauté until just beginning to soften.

Add the black beans and salsa and stir to coat with the oil and onions. Cook, stirring periodically, until heated through, about 4 minutes. Mash and set aside.

Meanwhile, spread the tortillas in a single layer on a baking sheet, then place in the oven until crisp, about 6 minutes, flipping the tortillas once half way through.

To serve, spoon the black beans over the crisp tortillas, add cojita and greens and any additional toppings (see below) and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings (3 tostadas each)
