Beef and Black Bean Tostadas

by Laura

A classic tostada is topped with refried beans, cheese, lettuce, salsa, and sour cream. These beef and black bean tostadas take the classic tostada up a notch. Not only is it topped with creamy refried beans, but it is also topped with a savory beefy black bean mixture.

With these you also need to add in cheese and sour cream. From there, you can add whatever other toppings you want on them. I didn’t use lettuce on these in the picture, simply because it would hide that beefy black bean mixture. Fresh chopped cilantro was added on top. Guacamole would also be a wonderful addition to this too.
