Meatless on Monday #3

I'm ready for another busy week so I'll just get to the recipe!  I'm sharing my meatless meal for you today and I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.  I found the recipe from the Meatless Monday website.  *I saved myself a bit of time and made Texas Caviar ahead of time and used this mixture for my Tostadas*

Black Bean Tostadas
serves 6


1 15 oz can black beans
½ teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon chili powder
6 whole-wheat tortillas
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 oz Monterey Jack Cheese, grated
4 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 cup grape tomatoes, quartered
1 avocado, diced
1 bunch scallions, chopped
1 lime

Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
In a small bowl, combine black beans, garlic salt and chili powder. Divide the bean mixture into two parts.

Brush both sides of tortillas with olive oil and place on a baking sheet. Top three of the tortillas with cheese and half the seasoned beans and leave the other three tortillas with just olive oil. Set the other half of the beans aside. Heat tortillas in the oven for about 10 minutes.

While the tostadas are heating, in a large mixing bowl, combine the corn, tomatoes, avocados, scallions and lime juice. Divide the corn relish into two parts. Combine one part of the corn relish with the reserved beans.
*Since I used Texas Caviar, I topped my tostadas with the mixture then added the tomatoes and avocado on top of that.*

When tortillas and beans are thoroughly heated, remove them from the oven. Cut the plain tortillas into bite sized strips to eat dipped in the seasoned bean corn relish. Finish the bean and cheese topped tortillas with the reserved corn relish and enjoy!
