Crispy tostadas topped with beans and veggies

Tostadas are crispy, flat corn tortillas sold in the supermarket. They are a great base for lots of quick meals and snacks. In this recipe, they are topped with a flavorful combination of roasted tomatoes and corn plus refried beans. A sprinkling of queso fresco (a crumbly, mild Mexican cheese) adds creaminess and a slight tang, and cilantro brings freshness.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half

  • 1/2 cup frozen corn

  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, measured separately

  • In a medium bowl, stir tomatoes, corn, 1 tablespoon oil, chili powder (if using), and salt until well combined.
