I don’t know about you, but Mondays can be really hard for me…especially when it comes to making dinner. One of my go to meals are these quick and easy black bean tostadas!
Seriously y’all, these tostadas are so good. Even my wonderful husband, who is not let’s say the most meatless open minded individual, loves them. They are super easy to make, and incredibly filling. Which in my book, is a winner every time.

Before we begin, allow me to sing the praises of my Blendtec. This is seriously the BEST blender ever!
I use this blender literally every day! Whether t’s smoothies, soups, dips, batters, or ice cream…this blender can make it all.
I will be honest, and let you know that the Blendtec is not cheap, but that is kind of the point. This thing can crush an iPhone…seriously watch it here. It will genuinely last forever, and let’s keep it real, you get what you pay for.
So if you are like me, and use your blender A LOT, feel free to check out the Blendtec here.
I begin by rinsing my black beans
First I put my olive oil and lime juice in the blender
Please ignore the lovely wallpaper…I have been patiently awaiting a full kitchen remodel. BUT, that is a different conversation for another day. 😉
Then add garlic, if you are like me then you add lots of garlic. I have a mild obsession with garlic, and it must go in EVERYTHING! Okay maybe not ice cream, but you get the idea.
Now it’s time to get cooking.
Just add beans and cheese on the tostadas. I personally add onions at this time too, but you do whatever works best for you.
Bake on 350 for 5-7 minutes, or until cheese is nice and melted.
Feel free to add toppings after the tostadas are finished baking. We like green onions, tomatoes, lettuce, salsa, cilantro, and avocado.
These black bean tostadas are SO easy, and super delicious! This is the perfect meal on those super busy days, or for when you just really aren’t feeling it…if you know what I mean! 😉
