Lunch Anyone?

I made this meatless dish for lunch yesterday and it was very yummy.

2 servings

1 cup canned black beans, rinsed & drained
6 Tbls mild salsa
1/2 tsp ground cumin (I didn't have this, so I used a dash of cayenne and a pinch of dried cilantro)
4 corn tostada shells
4 Tbls refrigerated guacamole (or you can use your own guacamole recipe like I did)
1 cup chopped romaine lettuce
1/4 cup chopped tomato
2 Tbls chopped green onion (I didn't have green onions, so used Vadalia onion instead)
Grated cheddar cheese (optional)

In a medium saucepan, stir together beans, salsa, and cumin. Heat thru and mash slightly. Meanwhile heat tostada shells according to package directions. Divide bean mixture evenly among tostada shells. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the guacamole onto each tostada. Top with lettuce. Sprinkle with tomato and green onion.
