Already Better Beef and Black Bean Tostadas

Good Better Best is back!  We were having some technical difficulties and we took a quick trip to Disney World earlier this month...where I actually found a way to eat the Good Better Best way, that will be a separate post.

So let's get cooking once again!

Tostadas are fun alternative to taco night.  They are just as easy to make as tacos but they do not fall apart when you eat them and they get even better with Good Better Best.  The black beans are a whole grain so this recipe starts out in the Better category!

Better Recipe

4 (6 inch) corn tortillas
Cooking spray or olive oil in an oil mister
1 (15 oz) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 lb lean ground beef
1 package taco seasoning
¾ cup water
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Place tortillas on a baking sheet and coat on both sides with cooking spray or olive oil from a mister.  Bake for 12 minutes or until crisp.

Brown ground beef until done and drain.  Add taco seasoning and water. 

Once water is absorbed, add black beans.  Gently mash beans, combining with beef.  Cook for 3 more minutes until heated, stir often.

Place tortillas on serving plate and top with beef and bean mixture.  Add cheese.  You may also add toppings such as shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes and light sour cream.

Best: Since you already have a whole grain with the bean, you can make the beans Best by choosing organic beans, or add multiple elements and combine organic beef, organic tortillas, organic cheese, organic lettuce and tomatoes.

Enjoy the Best food!
