Cheesy Corn Tostadas

with Black Beans and Tomato

Tostadas are crispy tortillas with all the fixings on top—basically, they’re crunchy flat tacos that have plenty of surface area for piling it on. The fixings on these don’t disappoint, either: you’ve got black beans, diced tomato, and charred corn for chunky texture, plus jalapeño for heat and pickled shallot for an acidic punch. It doesn’t matter if you dig in with a knife and fork or eat them with your hands—these tostadas are delicious either way.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Medium Pan
Small Bowl
Aluminum Foil
Baking Sheet
Potato Masher
Small pot



Adjust rack to middle position and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Drain corn and pat dry with paper towels. Finely dice tomato. Drain beans, reserving liquid. Halve, peel, and thinly slice shallot. Zest lime until you have ½ tsp; quarter lime. Roughly chop cilantro. Thinly slice jalapeño, removing ribs and seeds first for less heat.

Pickle Shallots and Char Corn

In a small bowl, toss shallot, vinegar, and ½ tsp sugar. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Heat a medium nonstick pan over high heat. (If your pan isn’t nonstick, heat with a drizzle of olive oil.) Add half the corn (save rest for another use) and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly charred, 3-4 minutes. (TIP: If corn begins to pop, cover pan.) Season with salt and pepper.

Make Tostadas

Place tortillas on a foil-lined baking sheet and top with a large drizzle of olive oil and a big pinch of salt. Using tongs, gently turn tortillas to coat all over, then spread out in a single layer on sheet. Prick each tortilla a few times to prevent puffing when baking. Bake for 6 minutes, then flip and bake until golden brown, 4-6 minutes more. Set aside to cool slightly. TIP: Place on a wire rack to cool faster.

Warm Beans

Heat a large drizzle of oil in a small pot over medium heat. Add beans and half the Fry Seasoning. Cook until beans are slightly soft, 2-3 minutes. Add ¼ cup bean liquid and a pinch of salt. Reduce heat to medium low and cook, stirring occasionally, until warmed through, 1-2 minutes. Mash with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth.

Coat Corn and Make Crema

In a second small bowl, combine charred corn, juice from 1 lime wedge, 1 TBSP sour cream (save the rest for the crema), cheese, and remaining Fry Seasoning. Season with salt and pepper. In a third small bowl, combine remaining sour cream, 1 TBSP cilantro, lime zest, a squeeze of lime juice, and 1 TBSP water. Season with salt and pepper.

Assemble Tostadas

Divide tortillas between plates. Spread each with beans, then top with tomato, corn mixture, and pickled shallot. Drizzle with crema. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro and jalapeño (to taste).
