  • ¼ cup no-sodium-added black beans, rinsed

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, divided

  • ¼ teaspoon taco seasoning

  • ¼ avocado, mashed

  • ¼ cup diced Roma tomato

  • 1 tablespoon diced white onion

  • 1 (6-inch) whole-wheat or corn tortilla

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 1 large egg

  • ¼ cup shredded romaine lettuce


  1. Combine black beans, water, 1 tablespoon lime juice and taco seasoning in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High for 2 minutes. Using a fork, mash the beans into a paste; set aside.

  2. Mash avocado with a fork in a small bowl. Add tomato, onion, the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice and a pinch of salt. Set aside.

  3. Coat tortilla on both sides with cooking spray. Heat a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the tortilla to the pan and toast, flipping once, until crisp and lightly browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.

  4. Crack egg into the pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, flipping once if desired, until the white is set, 2 to 3 minutes.

  5. To assemble the tostada, layer the bean mixture, avocado mixture and lettuce on the tortilla. Top with the egg.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
