Tex-Mex is at its finest (and easiest!) with this tasty tostada recipe. For a fun twist, cut the tortillas into triangles before toasting to make tortilla chips, and serve the cheese-tada toppings as a cold dip.

Nutrition Tip: Adequate amounts of fiber supports healthy digestion and can aid in keeping one regular. Luckily, just one cup of pinto beans provides about 50 percent of the recommended daily fiber intake!
