The corn tortilla I got were green chile flavored - which was awesome. They were really tasty and 90 calories each. I purchased them at the Fresh Market, I'm not sure if they are available in other stores. It was the first time I had seen them. If you prefer to scramble the eggs, that would be good too. I've made these same tostada a million times, in a million different ways, and scrambled eggs are awesome.
Sorry for the foggy/poor lighting photos, these were taken while tropical storm Isaac was hitting South Florida.
Skinny Vegetarian Black Bean Tostada
Cook Time: < 25 minutes
Prep Time: < 10 minutes
Serves: 8 tostadas
- 1 tsp oil
- 1/2 large onion, diced
- 1/2 bell pepper, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- salt and pepper, to taste
- jalapeno flavored hot sauce, to taste (optional)
- 1 tbsp tomato paste
- 2 cups cooked black beans (or canned beans, drained and rinsed)
- 1 medium tomato, diced
- 1 haas avocado, diced
- 8 corn tortillas, warmed
- oil spray
- 8 cage-free eggs, fried
- fresh cilantro, minced
Heat the oil in a medium pot, over medium heat. Saute the onions, peppers and garlic for about 5 minutes.
Add the vinegar, oregano, salt, pepper, hot sauce, tomato paste and black beans to the pot. Stir well, reduce heat and cover. Allow the beans to simmer for about 10 minutes or longer.
While the beans are simmering, prep the tostada ingredients. Begin frying the eggs (in the oil spray) and cooking to your desired done-ness. (I did mine medium, I like to poke the yolk and let it run into the beans and veg). Salt and pepper the egg if you'd like.
Warm the tortilla in microwave or on the stove top. If you are using the microwave, about 10 seconds per tortilla. On the stove, just heat the tortilla on a dry skillet until they are warm and loose.
To assemble the tostadas - Place the corn tortilla on a plate, top with 1/3 cup of black bean mixture, 1/8 of the diced tomatos and avocado (add a bit of salt and pepper if you'd like) and top with the fried egg. Sprinkle with a little cilantro.
Serve piping hot and have a few toppings on hand for customizing.
