Skinny Vegetarian Black Bean Tostada

For meatless Monday, I chose to make a recipe from one of my favorite food blogs: Laurie's Craving's.  Not only does everything look and (and the ones I have made) taste great, but her recipes are healthy.  Tasty, healthy cooking is something I dabble with, but I have always said just have a little and a huge salad. (well at least until I learn the secret of it)  This recipe was really tasty, not fattening, and really filling.  Even my husband, who isn't a fan of avocado, really liked his. (he also has an inherent prejudiced against healthy cooking:)  It was also an easy recipe to make and fast.  All the "ingredients" (pardon my pun lol) for a perfect weeknight family dinner.  My husband did add a small sprinkling of cheese over the beans, but it really wasn't a lot, and I didn't miss it on mine.  The only issue my son had, is he isn't a fan of corn tortillas.  I can empathize; we are conditioned in the US to think of tortillas as the flour type only.  It  takes some getting used to if you don't eat the corn ones.  I happen to love them for certain things and the flour ones for certain things.  I think this is definitely the time for the corn ones.  I wouldn't change a thing.
