  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place tostada shells on a baking sheet. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or until warm. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine beans, salsa and seasoning blend. Use a potato masher (or fork) to coarsely mash the mixture. Divide bean mixture among tostada shells, spreading evenly. Top with 1/2 cup cheese.
