Mini Bean Tostadas

Alrighty, another delicious meal. Again, nothing fancy, but still pretty yummy. This is what I made for lunch today and just had to share!

Mini Bean Tostadas

2 high fiber tortillas, quartered (Mission brand is what I use)
1 cup fat free refried beans
1/2 cup black beans
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salsa, for dipping

Take your quartered tortillas and place them in a toaster oven (or under a broiler) until they are slightly crispy. While those are toasting up, combine the refried beans and the black beans. Take the tortillas out of the oven and top them with the bean mixture and a sprinkle of cheese. Place them back in the toaster oven/broiler until the cheese is melted. Done! I dipped mine in some salsa, but you can top them with whatever you would like.

They were super yummy and delicious. Since the tortillas and beans are full of fiber, you stay full extra long. The entire recipe is 12 Weight Watcher points if you cap your fiber at 4 grams. The original program let you count unlimited fiber... that's the slider calculator that I have. If I calculate points using unlimited fiber, the whole recipe is 6 points. The salsa is all vegetables, so that has 0 points; the tortillas I used had 120 calories, 2.5 grams of fat, and 13 fiber so that would be 2 points if using limited fiber, 0 points if using unlimited fiber; the beans are all relatively similar and are 1 point per half cup regardless of the point method; the cheese is 3 points regardless of the point method.

I like coming up with different, healthy things to eat. Jeff doesn't like it so much, haha.
