  • Yield: 2 tostadas 1x


These vegetarian tostadas are loaded with black beans stacked on a crispy tortilla and are the perfect excuse to get out of bed in the morning.


  • 2 gluten-free corn tortillas
  • olive oil cooking spray
  • coarse sea salt (for garnish on homemade tostada shell)
  • 3 scallions (green and white parts thinly sliced)
  • ½ cup washed and quartered grape tomatoes
  • ½ cup rinsed black beans
  • 12 tbsp crumbled cotija cheese or queso fresco
  • ½ lime
  • ½ avocado (pitted and sliced)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.
  2. Lightly spray both sides of two gluten-free corn tortillas with olive oil cooking spray. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt, if desired.
  3. Place both tortillas side by side on a baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until golden and crispy.
  4. While the tortillas are baking, cook the scallions, beans, and tomatoes.
  5. Lightly spray a medium-sized skillet with olive oil cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add the scallions and cook 1-2 minutes. Add the black beans and tomatoes and season generously with salt and pepper. Cook 5 minutes until heated through. Remove from heat and pour contents into a separate bowl.
  6. In the same skillet, fry two eggs to preference (I prefer a sunny side up egg, but you can break the yolk if desired).
  7. Remove crispy tostadas from oven and let cool slightly.
  8. While still warm, place tostadas on two plates. Top each tostada with bean, scallion, and tomato mixture. Squeeze the juice of half of a lime over top.
  9. Place a cooked egg over top each pile of beans, scallions, and tomatoes.
  10. Garnish with cotija cheese (if desired). Place sliced avocado on the side.
  11. Enjoy with a fork and knife, or eat with your hands for a beautifully messy breakfast, using a fork to scoop up contents that may have fallen out.
