Here's another recipe that everyone in the family can customize to their own tastes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine avocado, lime juice, and salt in a medium bowl. Cover surface of guacamole with plastic wrap.

Step 2

Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add garlic; cook 1 minute. Stir in vegetable broth and beans. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Remove pan from heat; mash beans to desired consistency.

Step 3

Spread about 1/4 cup bean mixture on each tostada shell. Top each with 2 tablespoons cheese, about 1/3 cup guacamole, 1/4 cup lettuce, and 2 tablespoons Fresh Salsa. Serve immediately.

Step 4

Tip: You can make things even easier on yourself by purchasing store-bought salsa and guacamole if you can't find ripe avocados.

This recipe is fast and delicious and healthy. I used homecooked black beans with a little bacon fat to make the refried beans. I make black bean tostadas a lot. I was looking for a variation, and this quick guacamole was just the thing.

Quick and tasty

Made as written. It was good, but felt the beans needed a little salt. Had left overs the next day wrapped in a whole wheat low carb tortilla, instead of a tostada shell; good this way also.
