The Easiest Meatless Monday Recipe Ever – 15-Minute Bean Tostadas Recipe with Homemade CrockPot Refried Beans

This recipe for 15-Minute Bean Tostadas is perfect for busy weeknights, leftover night or like how I was inspired, and used up my leftover Homemade CrockPot Refried Beans.  I like serving tostadas on Thursday nights, for Thursday Night Football.  I will make the setup almost like I do for taco night, and then we can just assemble our tostadas and eat away.

Every time we go to a Mexican restaurant, I always order the tostada.  There is just something about that crunchy, salty corn tortilla, and the refried beans that makes my mouth smile.

A tostada is basically a flat taco, and if you wanted to, you could add all of your favorite taco toppings right on the top of the beans – even taco meat.  And, if you wanted to go one step further, perhaps serving Mexican at a dinner party, you can make homemade tostadas – just simply fry a corn tortilla in 375 degree oil for 2-3 minutes, or until crispy, transfer to a wire rack or a cookie sheet lined with paper towels, and season with salt.

Ingredients:

CrockPot Refried Beans
tostada shells – with the soft flour and corn tortilla shells
1, 8oz shredded Mexican cheese blend
shredded lettuce, optional
diced tomatoes, optional
