These Guacamole Tostadas are made with delicious black bean tortillas and are perfect for lunch or dinner!


  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 cup refried black beans, or pinto
  • 23 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Olive oil
  • Guacamole, homemade or store-bought
  • Optional toppings: cheese, pickled onions, jalapeños, lettuce, tomato, cilantro, salsa, hot sauce


  1. Add the flour and spices to a medium sized bowl and mix.  Next, add the refried beans and 2-3 tablespoons water.  The amount of water will depend on how watery or dry your beans are.  Use a fork to start mixing the beans into the flour and then use your hands to knead the dough and form it into a ball.
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat and add a few teaspoons of olive oil.  Pinch off a little bit of the dough and form it into a ball.  Place the ball between two pieces of parchment paper and press down with a large glass until you get a circle that is about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Place the tortilla into the hot pan and cook a few minutes each side, until browned.  Remove from the skillet and let cool for a few minutes.
  4. Top with a big spoonful of guacamole, spread over the tortilla and then top with your favorite toppings.  Enjoy!
