    One of my favorite quick weeknight meals. Great for a meatless Monday.

    I made this recipe as written and love it! It's low in calories, high in fiber and delicious. I add diced jalepenos with seeds. Real tostadas aren't made with flour tortillas, but who cares. They're delicious!

    To prepare re-fried beens, after blendind beens with half tomato and some onion, fry in just a bit of oil (not olive!). You can freeze the left overs for future molletes or enfrijoladas. For the best tostada, the lesss ingredients, the better!

    Tostadas should never be prepared with whole beens. Black beens most be blended with some of their cooking water, onion, salt and half a tomato. Then, spread the blended beens on the tostada, add cheese, avocado and salsa. Never serve with corn! A tostada needs only beens, cheese, avocado and salsa.

    I made this tonight on a very warm July evening. My family and I enjoyed it very much. I think I might skip the grape tomatoes next time and use "regular" tomatoes like Roma's and dice them. I also would put cilantro in the corn relish since we all love cilantro. Overall, very easy recipe to make and was eaten up by my children. : )

    I just made this for dinner for the family. We all thought that it was good. Not amazing, but good. It was very easy to make.

    Delicious recipe! Tossed the corn with the lime, and topped the tostada with avocado at the end, rather than adding the avocado to the relish. I used organic, whole grain tortillas from French Meadow bakery, which were healthy and crisped up so nicely! Thanks for a lovely, meatless recipe.

    I found if you use fresh corn cut off the cobb and sauteed it till it partially browns it adds another dimension to the salsa. Technically its not a salsa since you cooked the corn but oh well.Its good. For those of you that don't know what to do with the lime since it is not in the recipe directions just squeeze the lime over your corn mixture or tomatoes.Its a good recipe but I feel it needs some boost so I changed the jalapenos to serranos. Once again its good.

    what do you do with limes -- I'm using corn torts instead of flour

    Simple and delicious. I had vegetarian refried beans - so I added those before I baked the tortilla. I will definitely be making these again.
