  • Mixing bowl
  • Small bowl
  • Fork
  • Cutting board
  • Chef's knife


For the tostadas:

  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt

For the black beans:

  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the toppings:

  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1/4 red onion diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 lime cut into wedges


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Brush each tortilla with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place on the baking sheet and bake for 8-10 minutes, until crispy.
  • While the tortillas are baking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes, until softened.
  • Add the black beans, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper to the skillet. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the beans are heated through and the flavors have melded.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the avocado, tomato, red onion, jalapeno pepper, and cilantro.
  • To assemble the tostadas, place a scoop of the black beans on each tortilla. Top with the avocado-tomato mixture and a squeeze of lime juice. Serve immediately.
