Meatless Monday: Black Bean Tostadas
I am by no means a vegetarian but I like the idea of Meatless Mondays. Especially after gorging myself on an Easter buffet this weekend. A week or so ago, I saw this recipe for Black Bean Tostadas on the Dana Treat site. It looked tasty, budget friendly, and simple to put together. I was able to run to the store at 3:30 this afternoon and have everything prepped and ready to cook in under an hour.
The hubs and I rated this recipe as a keeper, though I think I would change a few things up. It ended up making not nearly as much beans as I thought it would, and way too much cabbage slaw. I'd probably double bean recipe, halve (or even quarter) the slaw recipe, and use more of the avocado salsa cruda (which I actually entirely forgot to make).
We paired it with a side of (boxed) Spanish rice. It filled us up and there was enough left over for my lunch tomorrow. Always a bonus when you're on a budget!
Cheeto thought it looked pretty delicious too!
