Family Feast - Day 2

Black Bean Tostadas with Chipotle Crema

Tostadas are not tidy to eat, but they sure are delicious! But we think crisp pan-fried corn tortillas amply piled with a cumin-studded vegetable and black bean filling, then topped with a bright salsa verde and a spicy, smoky chipotle crema, are worth getting a little messy for. Especially when they are served next to chili-roasted cauliflower and briny pickled carrot and jalapeño. Just grab some extra napkins.

  1. Preheat the oven to 400˚F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Coarsely chop the oregano leaves and the cilantro leaves and tender stems and set to the side with the salsa verde and chipotle crema. They will all be used for topping the tostadas.
  3. Heat the black beans in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes. Lower the heat as needed and keep warm.
  4. Meanwhile, toss the cauliflower florets with the chili oil and roast in the oven until heated through and sizzling, 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Set a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add enough oil to coat the pan (about 1 tablespoon). Working with one tortilla at a time, fry until crisp, about 45 seconds per side. Wipe out the pan and add a bit more oil as needed between tortillas.
  6. Spoon black beans onto each tortilla followed by the salsa verde and crema. Sprinkle with cilantro leaves.
  7. Sprinkle the chopped oregano over the chili-roasted cauliflower and the pickled carrot-jalapeño and serve alongside the tostadas.
