That's right. Your eyes didn't fool you. This is a recipe for tostadas... Made in a toaster oven*. They took me about 15 minutes total - From gathering the ingredients and making the tostadas to sitting down and enjoying them with a glass of Rioja. The best part of this is there is little to no clean-up which is always a bonus on a work night. They're healthy, filling and delicious. Although this recipe is for one serving, you can quite easily make it for more.

Toaster Oven Tostadas
Two corn tortillas
1/2 cup canned black beans
A couple dashes of chipotle tabasco sauce (optional)
1/2 cup reduced fat shredded cheddar
2 T reduced fat sour cream
2 T salsa
1/4 cup lettuce, shredded
1/4 cup tomato, seeded and diced
Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with non-stick spray. Place the tortillas on the cookie sheet and lightly spray with nonstick spray (this helps crisp the tortillas). Toast the tortillas on a low to medium setting until the tortillas' edges just begin to curl (about 3-5 minutes). Remove the cookie sheet from the toaster oven and turn the oven to 300℉.
Place 1/4 cup of black beans on each of the tortillas. Sprinkle tabasco sauce over the beans and top each tortilla with 1/4 cup of cheese. Place the cookie sheet back in the preheated toaster oven and cook for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Divide the lettuce, tomatoes, salsa and sour cream between the tortillas and enjoy.
