Description

Avocado Tostadas with Cucumber Pico are layered with crunchy baked tortillas, creamy refried beans, buttery avocado and a bright and refreshing cucumber pico de gallo. Consider making a double batch of the pico! It stores well in the fridge for 5-7 days and is great on everything!


Ingredients

Scale

For the tortillas:

  • 4 corn tortillas
  • Olive oil spray
  • Pinch salt and pepper

For the Cucumber Pico de Gallo:

  • 1 8oz container  Pure Flavor® Uno Bites™ Nano Cucumbers, diced
  • 1/3 cup finely diced red onion
  • 1/2 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice, about 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

To assemble:

  • 1 cup refried beans – any kind you like!
  • 1/2 cup cheese, optional – vegan or regular
  • 1 large avocado, sliced

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line up the tortillas on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Mist them with olive oil spray and sprinkle with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Bake until golden and crisp, about 10-12 minutes.
  2. While the tortillas are baking, stir together all the pico ingredients.
  3. Heat the refried beans in the microwave.
  4. Once the tortillas are warm, spread each with 1/4 of the beans and top with cheese, if using. Return to the oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese. If not using cheese, skip returning to the oven.
  5. Top each tostada with 1/4 of the avocado and cucumber pico. Enjoy!

Notes

For a vegan option, choose vegan refried beans and omit the cheese or use vegan cheese.
