Black Bean Tostadas with Cilantro Sour Cream Sauce Recipe

It's Monday again... how do these weeks just keep on flying by??

School was cancelled today and will also be cancelled tomorrow because of this brutal cold we're having this winter! Today's temp was around 40 degrees below zero windchill. Time to get out of Minnesota and take a warm, tropical vacation! A girl can wish right??

Today I'm sharing a meatless recipe with you for Black Bean Tostadas! We love having meatless meals around here and when we do go meatless, I love using black beans in our meals! These tostadas are cheap to make, easy to prep and cook and before you know it, dinner is served! I loved the Cilantro Sour Cream Sauce, and could serve it with any Mexican themed meal. I hope you enjoy!! :)
