How to Make It

Step 1

In a frying pan, warm oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion, and red pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in ground chile and cumin and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Step 2

Drain beans, reserving their liquid, and add to pan along with about 1/2 cup liquid. Stir and mash until beans form a slightly chunky purée and are heated through, about 3 minutes.

Step 3

To assemble tostadas, top each shell with 1/2 cup bean mixture, a few radishes, avocado slices, and cheese. Serve with lime wedges and salsa and/or sour cream.

Step 4

*Find in Latino markets and well-stocked grocery stores.

Made this as is for my daughter and I.   Husband wanted  fried egg on top of his. Used a spicier salsa verde to top mine along with sour cream. Gave it just the right kick.

We enjoyed this recipe. The kids were reluctant to eat the radishes, but once they tried it, they liked it. The radish flavor blends in with the other ingredients and adds to the flavor quite nicely. I added the salsa on top, I felt like it needed that kick. I would recommend this recipe.
