2 scallions, white and light green parts, finely chopped
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 8-inch flour tortillas
6 ounces grated low-fat Monterey Jack
1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted and diced
1/4 small red onion, finely chopped (2 Tbsp.)
1 tablespoon lime juice
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 425ºF. Combine beans, olive oil, scallions, chili powder and 1/2 tsp. salt in a bowl.
Mist a baking sheet with cooking spray. Place tortillas on sheet and spoon bean mixture on top. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake until golden and crisp, about 10 minutes.
While tostadas are baking, combine mango, onion, lime juice and 1/4 tsp. salt in a bowl. Remove tostadas from oven, spoon mango mixture on top and serve immediately.
Spice it up. If you like more heat, use pepper Jack cheese instead of plain Monterey Jack. Swap salsas. Don't care for mango or can't find one? Sub in tomato salsa instead. Go green. To add another layer of flavor, sprinkle on some chopped avocado and fresh cilantro after assembling. Put in more fruit. Mango gives the dish a touch of sweetness. Substitute or add chopped papaya, pineapple or kiwi for even more of a tropical taste. Try another base. We used small flour tortillas for these tostadas, but you can use corn tortillas if you prefer.

This was delicious. I added avocado (since it is in the picture) and cilantro. I also used a 22oz can of black beans since they are a favorite at my house. Very easy and fast. My 21 month old loved it, as did my husband who begged for me to make his without the mango and cilantro since he does not care for either. He ate 4, mango/cilantro and all!
I really enjoyed this simple recipe. I modified it to use fresh ingredients. I used premade frozen beans, and made corn tortillas to reduce the calories. Topped with, mexi blend cheese, sour cream (added the calories back), beans, mango, and chopped pickled jalapenos.
This meal was easy, healthy, and extremely delicious! The flavors of everything together create a wonderful combination in your mouth. My children ate it and my husband asked for thirds. We will definitely make this again.
