Ingredients
For Tostadas:
  • 7 corn tortillas
  • nonstick cooking spray
For Black Beans:
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can black beans
  • 1 La Morena chipotle pepper, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small garlic clove, minced
For Assembly:
  • 1/2 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese blend
For Topping:
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon adobo sauce, from La Morena Chipotles in Adobo Sauce
  • 1 (7-ounce) can La Morena La Morena Sliced Jalapenos
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425.
Prepare Tostadas:
  1. Use a small circle cutter (mine was slightly less than 2-inches) to cut 5 circles from each tortilla.
  2. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray, then add tortilla circles in a single layer.
  3. Bake mini tostadas for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned, flipping halfway through. Set aside.
Prepare Black Beans:
  1. Drain, but do not rinse, black beans. Add to a medium sized bowl, then mash until 75% smooth.

  2. Stir chipotle pepper, cumin, oregano, salt, and garlic into beans.
Assemble and Bake Tostadas:
  1. Top mini tostadas with black beans, then sprinkle with cheese.

  2. Bake tostadas until hot and cheese is melted, about 5 - 7 minutes. Remove from oven.
Top Tostadas:
  1. Combine adobo sauce and sour cream. Set aside.
  2. Remove a few jalapeno slices from the can and blot with paper towels. Cut into bite sized pieces. Place remaining slices in a small dish for a garnish. Set both aside.

  3. When tostadas are finished baking, sprinkle with cilantro. Top tostadas with a dollop of chipotle cream, then garnish with jalapenos, if desired.

  4. Serve tostadas immediately with extra jalapenos on the side. Enjoy!
