Homemade Black Bean Chipotle Baked Tostadas

Recently I had the most delicious tostadas at a Mexican restaurant. Naturally, my first instinct was to whip up a Food Heaven version of the recipe. So, we present, Homemade Black Bean Chipotle Tostadas. Tostadas are usually fried, but we always aim to put our healthy spin on our recipes. To switch it up, we baked these bad girls perfectly for a similar, delicious effect. These tostadas have incredibly vibrant and nutritious ingredients, making them the perfect meal for pretty much any time of the day. 

Homemade Black Bean Chipotle Tostadas By now, you know we love adding black beans in a ton of our recipes. Black beans are an excellent source of plant-based protein, fiber, B vitamins, potassium, iron, and other minerals. They can also be extremely cost effective. For example, buying dry beans can seriously stretch the food dollar, as they cost only pennies per serving. Of course, this can take some time to prepare, so we totally condone the use of canned beans, too. Just make sure to buy low-sodium canned beans and to rinse twice before using to remove that extra sodium. One cup of cooked black beans contains 15 fabulous grams of fiber.  

Homemade Black Bean Chipotle TostadasThis recipe encourages you to tap into your creativity with two different tostada versions and a handful of different ingredients you can add for toppings. Begin by preheating the oven to 400F. Using a oil mister, spray both sides of each tortilla lightly and place onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. While that’s happening, add the chipotle peppers and black beans to a food processor. Blend until a consistent paste has formed and set aside. In a bowl, add the avocado and juice of one lime, mash together with a fork or pestle, and set aside. Once the tortillas are crisp and browned, remove from the oven and layer evenly with the black bean paste first, and then add the avocado spread.

Homemade Black Bean Chipotle Tostadas Now for the toppings! For the portabella tostadas, sauté the mushroom slices in olive oil for 3-4 minutes. For the egg tostadas, cook the eggs your favorite way in olive oil. Top the tostadas with the mushrooms and/or eggs, and finish off by adding red onion, scallions, cilantro, and/or feta. Season with salt & smoked paprika, to taste. Enjoy!
