Vegetarian Tostadas

Too many types of Bondas. Lets eat something else now. Tostadas is an all time favorite to my daughter and also my two nieces. I like to watch them eat, with sour cream all over their faces, lettuce all over their plate. I like making this since without their knowledge they would have eaten at least 3-4 varieties of veggies. You can make it in many ways, and I even do this without cheese whenever my sister comes. So, before I even give you the recipe for my super hit tostadas, guess what’s all within this covered Tostada?

Ok, let me tell you what all was inside the covered tostadas. There were the following items within them:

  1. Black beans
  2. Cheese
  3. Salsa
  4. Onion
  5. Tomato
  6. Cucumber
  7. Lettuce
  8. Topped off with Sour cream

Enough of all the hide and seek, let me tell you how to do this. There is very less of cooking, except for preparing the black beans and lots and lots of chopping.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 can of black beans
  2. 1/2 finely chopped onion
  3. 1/4 tsp crushed pepper
  4. 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  5. 2 tsp oil
  6. salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in a pan, add crushed pepper and onion. Fry for a few minutes. Next, add the drained and rinsed black beans. Fry for a few minutes. Next, add hot sauce, salt and pepper and fry for another 3-4 minutes. I never mash the black beans.

Place 6 tostadas in a baking sheet as shown below.

Next, spread black beans on each of these tosatdas as shown below:

Add chesse on top of each of these tosatadas and keep in a 300 degree pre-heated oven for 6-7 minutes.

After 6-7 minutes and the chesse has melted, take it out of the oven and leave for 5-6 minutes. Make sure they are cool. Now lets start topping it with all the remaining ingredients I mentioned above. Here is the order in which the item are topped.

1. Salsa

2. Onion, Cucumber

3. Tomato

4. Lettuce and Sour Cream

6. Top off with another tostada on top and serve.
