Ingredients

  • 1 regular size Corn Tortilla , lightly warmed in a dry skillet or microwave so it is pliable
  • 1/3-1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese , shredded
  • 2 eggs , scrambled (or prepared to your preference)
  • 1/3 cup prepared Black Beans (from scratch or from a can; if canned, drained and rinsed), warmed
  • ½ cup Slow Cooker Pineapple Pulled Pork with cooking sauce reserved and warmed
  • 1/8-1/4 small ripe Avocado , cut lengthwise into slices
  • Lime wedges for a squeeze of citrus
  • Fresh Cilantro leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • Either in a dry skillet or microwave, sprinkle grated cheese onto the tortilla and cook just until it begins to melt. Place tortilla onto serving plate.
  • On top of the melted cheese, evenly layer the prepared eggs, then the black beans, followed by the shredded pork. Drizzle with some of the sauce from the slow cooker. Place the avocado slices on top of the tostada and sprinkle with cilantro leaves if desired. Serve with lime wedges.

Notes

Note on recipe preparation time: If making the slow cooker shredded pork from scratch for the tostadas (versus using some from preparing the Spicy Pork Pineapple Tacos) add 4-8 hours for slow cooking.
