Recipe: Black Bean Salmon Tostadas with Avocados

Mmmm…..  these black bean salmon tostadas with avocados were delicious! After posting one of my instagram photos I had several requests for this recipe….. so here you go! I will give a little warning that they’re quite messy, but definitely worth it!

i n g r e d i e n t s

cooking spray
6-inch corn tortillas
6-8 ounces of boneless salmon – cooked & chopped
1 avocado – diced
2 tablespoons jalapeños – minced
2 tablespoons pickling juice from jalapeños
2 cups coleslaw mix or shredded cabbage
1 15 oz. can black beans – rinsed
3 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
2 tablespoons salsa
Lime wedges (optional)

4 servings, 2 tostadas each 

i n s t r u c t i o n s
1 – Preheat to 375°F.
2 –  Spray tortillas on both sides with cooking spray. Place on baking sheets. Bake, turning once, until light brown, 12 to 14 minutes.
3 – Mix salmon, avocado and jalapeños in a bowl.
4 – Mix cabbage and the pickling juice in another bowl.
5 – Add black beans, sour cream, and salsa in a food processor & combine until smooth. Transfer to a microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high, about 2 minutes.
6 – To assemble tostadas, spread each tortilla with bean mixture, then salmon mixture and top with the cabbage slaw. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.
