Tostadas are a quick and easy way to add a little excitement to the usual taco night, and this meat-free version is no exception. Because between the crispy tortillas, creamy black bean mash, and smoky chipotle (oh, and did we mention plenty of melty cheese?) there's plenty of delicious fun to be had with this 30-minute dinner. 



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high. Add garlic and cook until just golden. Stir in chopped cilantro and cumin, then beans with liquid, chipotle, and 1/2 cup water. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened, 6 to 7 minutes.

  • Preheat broiler. Place 4 tortillas on a rimmed baking sheet brushed with oil. Divide cheese among them, piled in centers, and top with remaining tortillas. Brush tops with oil. Broil, rotating sheet once, until tops are crisp, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Flip and broil until second sides are crisp, 2 to 3 minutes more. Smash beans with the back of a spoon and spread mixture over tostadas. Top with lettuce, radishes, salsa, and cilantro leaves; serve.
