    suggest adding 1 tsp or cumin or chili powder; also suggest adding chopped onion, garlic, tomatoes, green peppers, shredded lettuce on top; guacomole on side or top. - 2/4/12

    I added a cup of leftover roasted chicken (nothing against the vegetarian recipe, it just needed to be used up!) and it was great! - 5/28/12

    Just had these for dinner and I am still a pretty big eater, usually eating about 750 calories for dinner, but one of these was very filling. SparkPeople recipes continue to provide an incredible array of hearty, tasty, and healthy foods. - 4/3/12

    I used flour tortillas because that is what we had, so I didn't pre heat them at all, just put the bean and salsa mix on them and in the oven for 7 min. Added cheese for the last 3 min. Served with homemade guac. SOOOO good! The husband LOVED it. - 6/6/11

    The picture shows 2 different tostadas. The one on the right has meat, but I think the one on the left is beans only. - 7/26/12

    simple and easy..what more could we ask for? *grin* :) maybe adding some chopped onion, tomato, and green peppers....to the bean mix..tostada supreme. which means a touch of guacamole too.:0 for sour cream, I am thinking maybe a dollop of Greek nonfat yogurt. - 3/18/13

    I like to sue dried beans. I soak them the night before, then, in the morning, use my crockpot, some veggie broth, chili powder, cumin and an chopped onion. at the end of the day, I then use a slotted spoon to take a serving, mash them and go from there. - 9/11/12

    Ok-so I changed it up just a bit and sprayed my tortillas with cooking spray and crisped them up good, then topped them with the hot bean/salsa mix and cheese. Added some pickled peppers and avocado-wow. Such a fast and simple meal but super tasty. Already looking forward to the leftovers. - 2/18/12

    I've made this but instead of the tortillas, I made it into a rice bowl using brown rice. - 7/13/11

    I like to add shredded lettuce or spinach, or any fresh green, and onions. To reduce sodium, rinsed the canned beans thoroughly, it helps a lot. you could use home made pico de galo, and no salt. substitute cilantro, you won;t miss the salt. Bought fresh pico del galo usually no salt. read label - 7/6/11

    Thanks for reminding me about this tasty fast meal. I like mine a bit sloppier. I toast the tortillas in a dry skillet and mash the beans in a small pan and heat. Then arrange the tortilla w/ beans, then salsa, then cheese. Pop in microwave to melt. Top with lots of tomatoes, lettuce & onion. - 10/13/12

    You could use the flat breads which are 60 calories and spray them with I can't believe it's not butter to bring this way down in calories - 6/10/12
