Tostadas with Black Beans

Tostadas with black beans is a good meal and only takes 20 minutes to prepare with these directions.

You will need one 16 ounce can of drained black beans.

1/2 cup of canned refried beans

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

4 tostada shells

1 cup shredded spinach

3/4 cup diced tomatoes

1/4 cup shredded cheddar chees

2 tablespoons sour cream

2 tablespoons snipped cilantro

In a medium bowl,you will mash the beans ,refried beans,cilantro,chili powder.

Spread the mix over tostada shells.

sprinkle with spinach,tomatoes and chees.

Spoon sour cream over and add cilantro.

I like to place in microwave for 30 seconds.

You can substitute beans for meat if you wish.
