Please ignore the lovely wallpaper…I have been patiently awaiting a full kitchen remodel. BUT, that is a different conversation for another day. ๐Ÿ˜‰

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.

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.
