For these quick and easy tostadas you'll need to assemble ingredients: refried beans, salsa, queso fresco, tortillas and avocados.

Here is what you need:

Corn tortillas (10 count)
15 oz can re-fried beans
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 lime or 1/2 tsp lime juice
2 avocados
10 oz pico de gallo
4 oz sliced black olives
4 oz queso fresco or cotija cheese, crumbled
non-stick cooking spray
 

Use cooking spray on your corn tortillas, laying them flat across a baking sheet.

Step 1: Preheat oven to 400F. Place tortillas on baking sheet and spray each side with non-stick cooking spray. Bake tortillas 4 minutes on each side or until edges are slightly curled. Remove from oven and set aside.

In a small bowl mash the refried beans with lime, chili powder and cumin.

Step 2: To a small bowl, add re-fried beans, chili powder, cumin powder, and lime juice. Mix all ingredients together and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes or until beans are warm.

Slice the avocado and assemble the ingredients including the beans, salsa, cilantro, olives and of course, the tortillas.

Step 3: Cut avocado in half, remove pit, slice into thin strips, and scoop the green flesh out of the shell with a spoon.

Assemble the easy, healthy vegetarian tostadas by topping them with the beans, vegetables and queso fresco.

Step 4: Assemble tostadas by topping each toasted tortilla with 1/4 cup re-fried bean mixture, 4 avocado slices, 1/4 cup pico de gallo, 2 Tbsp crumbled queso fresco, and 1 Tbsp black olives. Serve as is or squeeze a little  lime juice over the top of each tostada before serving.

Recipe Notes: You can find the pico de gallo in the deli section of your grocery store and the Mexican cheeses in the refrigerated cheese section.
