Crispy Oven Beef-and-Bean Tostadas
Additional garnishes for tostadas can include salsa, sour cream, guacamole, black olives, and Mexican-blend shredded cheese.
For fewer calories, omit the beef topping. Try cooked shredded chicken to make chicken tostadas.
If you like your ground beef a bit more spicy, add to the seasoning mix: 1 teaspoon chili powder (such as New Mexico powdered Chimayo), 1/2 teaspoon onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt (such as Lawry's(R), 1/4 teaspoon low-sodium beef bouillon granules, 1/8 teaspoon ground cumin, and 1/8 teaspoon sugar.
You can use your own refried beans in this recipe, or use a can of your favorite brand.
