black bean and mango tostadas*

Sorry everybody, I have seriously been slacking! The husband passed along his flu to me, so I have been basically strapped to the bed/couch for most of last week and just started feeling good enough to escape to St. George for the weekend! But I'm back and better than ever :).

We started my new menus last week!! I am going to need to tweak them a little bit, but we definitely have switched things up. Yesterday we served these refreshing and gorgeous black bean and mango tostadas! They look so happy and make me wish it were summer! We served them along side the vegan quinoa and black beans I tested out a couple of weeks ago.

Black Bean and Mango Tostadas
from Two Peas and Their Pod

Corn tortillas
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained and heated up
1 mango, peeled and chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
Fresh cilantro, chopped
Romaine lettuce, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
Lime wedges
Salsa, if desired

1. Turn the broiler on high. Spray corn tortillas with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt. Place on a baking sheet. Put corn tortillas in the oven until crispy, about five-seven minutes. Flip them once to make sure each side is crispy.

2. Top corn tortillas with black beans, mango chunks, onion, tomatoes, cilantro, lettuce, and avocado. Dress with fresh lime juice and salsa.

Are these not so cute? And guess what?! If you serve it with my quinoa the entire meal is VEGAN!! As I have mentioned before, I really seriously jump for joy when I find recipes like this! We have some vegans at the school and let's be serious, there are not tons of options for them. And, they are super healthy (shhhh...)!
