Some of my favorite meals are the simple ones. Black bean and mango tostadas are at the top of our list when it comes to easy dinner recipes. This meatless meal is loaded with fresh flavors and hits the spot every time.

We use corn tortillas for the base of our tostadas. I don’t fry the corn tortillas, instead I broil them in the oven. You get the same crispy results without having to mess with hot oil. They are healthier and a lot easier to make. We top the crispy corn tortillas with black beans, mangoes, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro, lime, lettuce, and avocado. If we have extra time, Josh will make a batch of his famous mango salsa to go with the tostadas. Go crazy and add on whatever toppings you like.

Black bean and mango tostadas are fast, fresh, and full of flavor. This is one of our go to meals when we are hungry and craving a healthy and delicious meal without all of the fuss. Add these black bean and mango tostadas to your weekly menu today!

  1. I love putting tortillas under the broiler and watching them bubble and brown up. Looks so tasty- especially with the mango.

  2. Think this might be on the menu for tonight. We have some corn tortillas that I don’t know what to do with. Going to try to toast them on the grill because it is going to be another HOT & HUMID day here in MN. Thanks for the great recipe!

  3. This looks so good! Your pictures are great Maria. We did the Strawberry Limeade recipe with our Sunday dinner, and I blogged about it and linked to your site. We are trying the rolo cookies next. Thanks for sharing your talent!

  4. Maria, you are making me realize that it has been far too long since I last made Mexican food! We have some hot weather coming our way and these look perfect for a night on the deck. Thank you so much for the mention!

  5. I’ve baked up flour tortillas before and then used them as little bowl, but I’ve never tried it with corn tortillas, and definitely not with mango – these look fabulous!

  6. How do you eat a tostada… pick it up? Doesn’t it break apart and make a mess? Or just eat the contents then nibble on the tortilla?

    1. We pick them up and eat them. You can also break off pieces of the tortilla and scoop up the toppings!

  7. I suppose you could pick up the whole thing, but in Texas we find Texas sized tostadas and I fear all the goodness would fall out and on to the plate! So we break up the shell and use it as a scoop or spoon. I had a tostada yesterday! Scoop, scoop, scoop! Yum, yum, yum!

    1. We pick them up and eat them. They make a little mess, but not too bad. Just have a napkin ready. You can break off pieces and scoop up the toppings if you wish.

  9. This is such a nice salsa – I love the combination of black beans and mango and make a similar recipe that I like to accompany with grilled fish or chicken.

  10. I love mangos and this looks like a real treat! I’m doing a cooking demo at the Farmer’s Market using mangos next week and I’ll have to mention this as another easy meal to make them.
    I came home from vacation yesterday to my Feta package on the front door. Perfect timing since school starts today. I have my cute little lunchbox all packed for today! Thank you!!!
    56 days till Blogher. Countdown has began!

  11. A tostadas with mango sound just wonderful for a hot summer night! This looks so wonderful and fresh. I will put it on the menu.

  12. I found this recipe today and had all the ingredients. These were delicious, half way through the meal my husband asked me to fix this again. Thank you for a healthy meal option.
