  • 6 (6 inch) corn tortillas
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 (15 ounce) can low-sodium black beans, rinsed
  • ¼ cup reduced-fat sour cream, divided
  • 1 scallion, chopped
  • ¾ teaspoon salt, divided
  • 2 cups vegetable slaw or coleslaw mix
  • 1 avocado, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ¼- ½ teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • ½ cup water
  • 2 cups shredded turkey or chicken (about 8 oz.)
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for garnish


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Coat both sides of tortillas with cooking spray; place on a large baking sheet (it's OK if they overlap a little). Bake, flipping once, until light brown and crispy, 12 to 14 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, combine black beans, sour cream, scallion, and ¼ tsp. salt in a medium bowl. Mash with a potato masher or large fork to form a chunky paste. Combine vegetable slaw (or coleslaw), avocado, lime juice, oil, and ¼ tsp. salt in another medium bowl.
  4. Whisk tomato paste, garlic powder, chipotle powder, water, and the remaining ¼ tsp. salt in a medium saucepan until smooth. Add turkey (or chicken); cook over medium heat until the meat is coated and heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in cilantro.
  5. To assemble tostadas, spread a scant ¼ cup bean mixture over each tortilla. Top with a scant ½ cup slaw and about ⅓ cup meat mixture. Garnish with more cilantro, if desired.
