  • Cuisine: Mexican


  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, cut into bit size thin strips
  • 1 green pepper, cut into bite size thin strips
  • 1 yellow squash, or zucchini, cut into bite size thin strips
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 tostada shells
  • 1 cup refried beans, I like to use black
  • Optional: shredded cheese
  • Toppings: salsa, hot sauce, avocado, cilantro


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.  Heat a large pan over medium heat and add olive oil, all of the fajita veggies and spices.  Mix together, cover with a lid and let cook until veggies are tender, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. While veggies are cooking lay out tostadas on a large sheet pan and spread each one with 2 tablespoons of refried beans.  Once veggies are finished cooking divide them equally among the 8 tostadas and place in the oven until refried beans are heated through, about 5 minutes.  If you are adding cheese you can add that right before you put them in the oven and then bake until cheese is melted.  Serving size is 2 tostadas per person.
