  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 tostada)


  • 1 (16-ounce) can red beans, rinsed, drained, and divided
  • 1 (15-ounce) can no-salt-added whole-kernel corn, drained
  • 1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 6 (6-inch) corn tortillas
  • 3 cups shredded lettuce
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded reduced-fat sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt


Preheat oven to 350°.

Place 1 cup beans in a shallow bowl, and mash with a fork. Place in a medium saucepan; add remaining beans, corn, and next 4 ingredients. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Uncover and cook until thickened and bubbly, stirring occasionally. Set aside, and keep warm.
